As did I, initially. It wasn't until Tony raised the issue that I
looked at the sources close enough to realise that StrongMen will
issue a Filer_Run command when no command is specified.

The original Directories section probably dates back to a time when
running !System would simply open the System directory (without any
problem). Looking at the datestamp of the Demo file in OpenDir it
seems it's from 1999 at least, so probably pre RISC OS 4 which might
explain things.
