To what would you want to set the ACL?

The code snippet posted makes the file inherit the ACL of its parent directory, which in this case would be the temp directory.

Which is exactly the current behavior.

And updating these attributes one at a time during checkout would be huge (not a small) performance killer during checkout, as both operations would be updating the MFT.

We should try to perform as much operations as possible while having the files open anyway, as each file open (which at the kernel level includes operations as setting properties) will involve virus scanners, etc.

With the current trunk code the best solution might be to just remove the setting of the 'don't index' property, as the current code already moves the files in place while still open and 100% locked from indexers.
(Those indexers really slowed us down on Windows XP and 7 around the time that we introduced this flag as the indexer opened the file between us creating and moving the file)
