The fact that some people don't have swap isn't a reason. They don't have swap because they don't need it. If tmpfs were otherwise the right choice, they could easily have swap space.
I would add swap space to a system even if it couldn't benefit from it for swapping, just to back tmpfs. It's a more efficient way of storing temporary, expendable files than any disk-based filesystem I know.
