mfs/mdconfig under RELENG_5: malloc vs swap-backed

Dear colleagues,

can anyone please point me why mdconfig method for tmpmfs  
is malloc-backed instead of swap-backed, and it is hardcoded into rc.subr? 

Are swap-backed file systems so inefficient? If no, why not move -M to 
/etc/defaultc/rc.conf so admin can override this behaviour?
