In Emacs, every buffer has its own "current directory", the value of
default-directory of that buffer.  So you are in effect proposing to
change exec-path whenever a buffer is switched, including temporary
buffers used by Emacs under the hood and whatnot.

OTOH, the current directory is always implicitly present, so while
completion indeed doesn't happen, typing "M-! test.bat RET" _will_ in
fact invoke the batch file.

So I wonder what are the real-life use cases that motivated you to ask
for this change.  Is that only completion?
