The objection that impressed me the last time this was suggested is that
it's totally counter-intuitive to have a binary called mount_mfs that
doesn't mount an MFS filesystem.  Rather, it does all sorts of icky
extra stuff to achieve a rather specific goal.

I still don't see why an rc.conf knob specifically for /tmp isn't
sufficient.  That's what people want this for.  Others can read the
excellent documentation supplied in mdconfig(8), which is appropriately
cross-referenced from md(4), which is the manual page for the device
concerned.  Logical, orthogonal and pretty damn easy, when you look at
the EXAMPLES section. :-)
