[Catalyst] default action arguments

Just curious why the path is prepended to the list of arguments to
default.  It caught me by surprise and was wondering if there was a good
reason for it, backward compatibility, or just some pattern that makes 
good use of it.

    package MyApp::C::Company::Test;
    use strict;
    use base 'Catalyst::Base';

    sub default : Private {
	my ($self, $c, $arg1, $arg2, $arg3) = @_

    sub list : Local {
	my ($self, $c, $arg1) = @_;

If its not clear above, why is ($arg1, $arg2) = ('company','test') and
why not the first argument off of PATH_INFO?
