Question about s6-svscanboot (s6 examples)

I don't understand the changes made to this script in commit
3bcbbe18f9a60c0743c30d391c7878034e4b1274 (just before the release of
version Previously, the 'exec -c' invocation came first, and
the 's6-envdir -I /service/.s6-svscan/env' invocation, just before
exec...()'ing into s6-svscan, so that the /service/.s6-svscan/env
environment directory would become the supervision tree's complete

But then the order was inverted. So now /service/.s6-svscan/env seems
useless, and the supervision tree starts with an empty environment,
including an undefined PATH? It looks wrong to me...
