Because you are free to use : and ; as path separators freely in Ant
but need to convert it to the OS convention when using it as a value
of an environment variable.

Ant needs to know it is a PATH like thing - you wouldn't want it to
replace all colons by semicolons on Windows for arbitrary variables.
