win32 "Path"

Regarding the win32 "Path" discussions. I noticed that even though my
system environment variable is called "PATH". When I type "set" in a
cmd.exe, I still see "Path" as the variable name.  This is how it
appears in the 3.81 beta make as well I noticed.

I wonder how it is possible to really end up with "PATH" for the
environment variable?

I looked in the registry, and in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/system/controlset001/Session Manager/Environment/
there is PATH!

controlset002 and controlset003 are the same. I wonder where this
"Path" spelling comes from?

smss.exe is the first process spawned on win2k (Windows NT Session
Manager), that has "Path" as it's environment variable spelling too
I notice. As does every child process of smss.exe (which is launched
by ntoskrnl.exe).

Kind regards
