Bug#640263: debian-policy: Clarify policy section 9.9 - Environment variables

Package: debian-policy
Severity: normal

Per resolution of bug #639997 I would like to ask for clarification of
section 9.9 in the polcy regarding environmental variables, and if it
implicitly excludes "global" environmental variables like PATH, or if
all programs must include themself a sensible default PATH as fallback.
