Well, I can count my unexpected reboots in the last years with one hand, so this is not a problem. And as already mentioned, you can configure with TMPTIME in /etc/default/rcS, which files in /tmp will be deleted.

you to redownload these images. Couldn't /var/tmp serve this purpose better, if it's not exactly ephemeral data? (Like a temporary ISO created from on-disk content.)

Since I’m not interested in filling my /var partition with tmp files (and so getting problems with databases or logs), /var/tmp is always a link to /tmp.
