RAMTMP is already documented in both /etc/default/tmpfs and the tmpfs(5)
man page.

I think those configuration knobs are interesting in that they
are easily-found, self-documenting suggestions for system tuning,
customization and good practices that curious admins might not have
thought of otherwise, if it was just left to putting whatever in

In fact RAMTMP is perhaps the most important item in /etc/default/tmpfs,
because there are both strong pros and cons and it's really up to the
admin's choice and the use case for the system.
