With the simple solution of YaST not adding an entry the user has

without the consequence of making snapshots of /tmp which looks
very bad to me. The user would have to disable the mount unit,
create a snapshot in the right way, and add it to fstab.

Why would they need to create a snapshot?

Because YaST does would not create one anymore. Unless YaST gets
extended to create snapshots and not add them to fstab.

Plus, it's worth noting that with VM/Cloud images being an increasingly
common way of getting openSUSE these days, what "YaST does" is not the
only thing we need to keep in mind.

But is a thing to keep in mind.
