It can be documented in devel pages., maybe Contributing.

But IMHO, the normal use should be via the --load-path option and the
GUIX_LOAD_PATH should be less and less used; stay here for historical
reason and/or backward compatibility and/or some devel use-case.

Well, for discoverability, it appears to me easier to list an option
with "guix <cmd> --help" than list environment variables.

All the best,
