Of course, if we start using this filesystem for random purposes that
have nothing to do with the reason it was created first, we couldn't
remove it if the shared memory implementation is changed. Then we'd have
to stick with a stupid filesystem that would require a transition to get
rid of.

Following your line of reasoning, we could put all files in the root
directory. After all, do we really need to follow the FHS?
