You're reporting a bug.  The standards say this isn't a requirement or
a problem.  Prove your case or at least take it to private email.

There are billions and billions of ways you can tweak environment
variables to break shell scripts that don't bother.  What's your
point?  If I can tweak IFS to change parsing, I can also tweak PATH.
