if i were to hazzard a guess, the reason the code doesn't use
mkstemp() is that [1] the code cited is likely well more than
twice age of mkstemp() [2]and nobody has gone looking for
things to fix that were still (apparently) working. (big grin)

the question about /tmp is probably related the security issues
and how difficult it has been to make /tmp files robust against
