Maybe you want to associate it with a real file name?
Then it will get auto-save protection, etc.
Probably some temp-name (so that multiple instances do not clash) in
~/.emacs.d, that gets deleted when you call remember-finalize?

Thanks for the extra suggestion.

Auto-save protection would be nice, but that seems like a separate issue, unless you're also suggesting that the prompt-on-exit for an unfinalized remember buffer should be to save in a temporary file (which could be confusing, especially for a user who doesn't use desktop.el or some other session support), in which case I'm not sure it's a good idea.

In any case, as Sebastian has pointed out, remember is effectively obsolescent; this sounds like it might be over-complicated for a minimal fix.
