It can prevent accidentally using objects that were created by another
program and accidentally left in QTEMP. The shop I work in doesn't put
it in the library list either. We have several very long running
jobstreams that call lots of sub-programs, and with changes happening,
sometimes beyond our control and unexpectedly, they do break more often
than we'd like. It not being in the library list doesn't cause any
issues as long as you explicitly reference QTEMP when you want to use
something in there. Other places I've worked have put it at the top of
the library list, and used it as sort of an implicit override. Both ways
work fine as long as you're consistent.
