and there is nothing stopping anybody from putting /rescue
in the PATH before /bin or /sbin.

Note that this will not have the same performance as the older all-static setup, because each binary in /rescue is a crunchgen'ed combination of *all* the commands there. They're all hardlinked together. Eg:

(332) # ls -l /bin/cp /rescue/cp
-r-xr-xr-x    1 root  wheel   113372 Nov 16 02:29 /bin/cp*
-r-xr-xr-x  131 root  wheel  3807836 Nov 16 02:30 /rescue/cp*

I have no idea what kind of a difference that would make,
I'm just saying that it is different...  :-)
