Because using environment variables to tune program X will also affect
programs A-Z.

Nope. Try this at your Unix command prompt:

echo $CRAP
CRAP=hello echo $CRAP
CRAP=world echo $CRAP

in windows there are user-environment-variables (walter talking about) and shell-environment variables (like in your example)
setting user-environement variables will affect every program
thats why java is not using them
