Yes, the entire point of koji is reproducible builds. Allowing a
binary blob tarball to be extracted into your buildroot leaves you
(potentially) not knowing what went into that buildroot, therefore you
can't make the database entries of exactly what was in the buildroot.
Usually the root cache is just a cache containing some packages. I
realize this doesn't seem to work with koji because since every chroot
is new, there's no point in caching.

Not a koji developer, but I sure hope not :)
I'd like to have them optionally configurable, not enabled by default :P
What about tmpfs? That shouldn't interfere with build reproducibility.
