We've rejected session variables many times before because they duplicate
temporary tables.  I don't see anything new added by this proposal.

This is how temporary tables would operate if they followed the SQL
standard.  (That is, the temporary table structure is persistent but the
contents are deleted at the end of the session.  See compatibility section
of CREATE TABLE reference page.)  Perhaps implementing that would satisfy
your needs.
