Is this not already the case?  From `(elisp)Making Backups':

 -- Variable: backup-enable-predicate
     This variable's value is a function to be called on certain
     occasions to decide whether a file should have backup files.  The
     function receives one argument, an absolute file name to consider.
     If the function returns `nil', backups are disabled for that
     file.  Otherwise, the other variables in this section say whether
     and how to make backups.

     The default value is `normal-backup-enable-predicate', which checks
     for files in `temporary-file-directory' and

`temporary-file-directory' is "/tmp/" by default.
