Yes, if you use tmpfs for the directory then it will get lost at
reboot. Its contents will be rebuilt in the first few minutes of
operation anyway, so it's no great loss.
And forcing you to start afresh once every few months when your
server is rebooted forces any fragmentation issues in the database
file to be scrapped. So it's actually quite a good idea.

Yes, there is. You could easily move it to /var/tmp if you prefer.
