I don't think I see a specific reason for nginx to do that, because
that may cause a delay with its start, but it's definitely
possible to:
o) implement a specific logic and rebuild nginx binary, also raise
   a request in and submit a patch;
o) use other then /etc/nginx directory for temporary files, for
   example /var/tmp/nginx, see ./configure output for details

Hope that helps.

Thank you.
