(guessing here; Ryan did not give much information)

I think what Ryan means is that /etc/environment is a file used to set
environment variables from within PAM; and that, in his opinion, it is a
bad idea to start using that file to store a bunch of system-wide
settings from things that have nothing to do with PAM, since that's not
what it's meant for.
