That means the _code_ for default method for the function
project-search-path should not append the value of the result of the
function project-root-directories.

It says nothing about the _meaning_ of the concept
"project-search-path", nor the result of the function pointed to by
project-search-path-function; it is free to include whatever directories
it wants.

The point was I thought that project-search-path and project-directories
were distinct concepts, not related to each other. The contents may
overlap, or either one may not be defined.

Now that I see that you intended them to mean project-path-read-only and
project-path-read-write, things have changed.
