Surely a pipe counts as an explicit redirection?

And even if it didn't, the inconsistency between the first and subsequent asynchronous elements is confusing.

Posix requires this behavior:

"The standard input for an asynchronous list, before any explicit
redirections are performed, shall be considered to be assigned to a file
that has the same properties as /dev/null."
