I have this path hardcoded in the settings.php for all the sites on the 
server. The settings hardcode tmp dirs to  
in /path/to/Drupal/sites/example.com/files/tmp.

that way they a) use up the diskspace for one account. b) cannot be changed to 
path/to/drupal/modules/node/ (what happens when someone changes it to that 
and uploads a node.module file.... yup, your probably rooted then) c) 
no 'nobody's as file owners and other nasty /tmp hacks possible. d) 
require /only/ files to be writable.
