Phusion Passenger terminates worker processes by calling exit!. This
does not call finalizers on MRI, causing temp files to be left behind
sometimes. There seems to be no way to call finalizers, even GC.start
doesn't work. I too would like to see Tempfiles being cleaned up
explicitly.

Other than that, I've seen system administrators who are confused by
the fact that such Tempfiles are not immediately cleaned up. Some
people who operate websites that handle a large number of concurrent
uploads are worried that they might run out of disk space because of
this.
