You can certainly not allow execute permission to *_tmp_t (the types
applied to files created in /tmp) in your policy.  In fact, most domains
should already be that way.  unconfined_t naturally can do that (since
it is unconfined); you could create a customized version of it that
isn't allowed to do that, but only via a custom policy.
