Do the current docs say that well enough, or should we revise?:

 Normally, current-directory-for-user should stay at its initial value,
 reflecting the directory where a user started a process. A tool such
 as DrRacket, however, implicitly lets a user select a directory (for
 the file being edited), in which case updating
 current-directory-for-user makes sense.
