Yes, please and thanks. :-)
(Maybe consider doing a one-time migration to /etc/fstab and then drop
support for the settings in /etc/default a bit further down the road.)

This would be fine with me. The main point is to have one place to set
up custom mount points (be it tmpfs /tmp or special mount options for
whatever other file systems exist) and that should be /etc/fstab.
