Yes!  This is an important part of the concept of *scratch*.

IMO "scratch" carries the meaning of a storage area for work in
progress. I don't see why that should also mean "that you will loss if
you exit Emacs while a bit distracted".

We can simply add a customize option to set buffer-offer-save in
*scratch*. It's easier and more flexible to add the four or five lines
of a defcustom than another special file/buffer and the documentation
and cognitive load (for new users) that comes with it.
