Further documentation on the RegEnumValue function (used by the _winreg module): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724865(v=vs.85).aspx. The documentation doesn't say whether the string is expanded or not on retrieval. 

Given the current behaviour plus the ExpandEnvironmentStrings function, this seems like a non-issue.
