There is a problem with that: if your bash environment calls only one other
bash-script it will fail either. Another problem can be script-replaced
binaries. If you replace some classical binary with a shell-script for
additional parameters (or any other thinkable reason) this general export
approach will fail, too. 
Or lets say your favourite email client calls some script to mark spam...
There are a lot of black holes in this ground ...
