Follow-up Comment #17, bug #62865 (project octave):

I don't know if this is the only use case. But one that comes to mind is the
The load path is where the information is stored which character encoding is
used to parse a file. If a user executes a script or function using a path
that differs from the one originally fed to the load path (e.g., in character
case or different symlink path), they probably still expect that the file is
executed taking that information into account.

be the covered by the first requirement.
