This is certainly something that you can do if you want, but
having it be the default would be a bad idea, not to mention
that it doesn't provide much security which others have talked
In the case of laptop users OpenBSD gets booted freqently.
I once had an important file on /tmp (dumb, I know) which I
hadn't moved to /u before shutting down. I was able to recover
it by booting into single user mode and moving it, but under
your scheme it would have been lost.
