While you are right about the cross platform considerations, I don't understand this:

The platform honours sticky-directory permissions so that the created temporary file remains accessible with permissions of the users home directory

?! Accessible to who? In general you really only want the user creating the file to have access to the temporary file. That's one of the problems with /tmp in the first place.
