Anything and everything in the temp directory structure is fair game for
delete. The only exception is immediately after installing any application
that requests a reboot, but after the reboot is complete and the app is
fully installed, you can delete the contents of temp.

Hi Smurf,

Yes the contents of the temp folder can be deleted. It's best to do so
after a reboot.
