on my device I use defaultenv-1 for the same reason. Basically I just
have one env/bin/init and one env/config file and that's it. And the
env/config one is even so small that I could fold it into env/bin/init.

This even more so as my device is "set in stone", e.g. there is no SPI
EEPROM or other means (partition) to store an environment. What comes
with the compiled barebox is the environment.

Having things in one place and not scattered around makes things visible
at a glance.
