If you talk about global temporary tables (GTT) then there are no
differences between usual (persistent) tables and GTT since GTT's
metadata is persistent. I.e. GTT's metadata don't disappear automagically -
just data.

If you talk about table variables - they declared in procedure or trigger
and again there are no problems since such declarations don't create

If you talk about transient datasets (TDS) - should be no way to create
dependence on it since they declarations don't stored in system catalog,
