From a user standpoint, it is confusing that running the command gets different results the second time it is run vs. the first time. I can imagine a user saying "I ran pkg, but it didn't do what they said it would. Now I run it again, and it does do what it is supposed to." Also, it would enable setting up a pkg-bootstrap man page separate from the pkg man page, without confusion about which one you're looking at.

I do personnally have no opinion on this, I have hesitated long between both
before choosing /usr/sbin/pkg.
I'm interested in other's opinion.
