The \product command is more or less useless because it provides only 
the information
of the main file of the document.

The real question is where you should put the \project or \environment 
When you put them before \startproduct you’re loading your fonts before 
the start
of the document and the Latin Modern fallback isn’t used but when you 
put them
after \startproduct you load your font after the Latin Modern fallback.

One advantage when you load the project/environment after \startproduct 
(or \startcomponent)
is that you can use the product or component modes in your environment 
file to set
different image or subpath folder dependant on which file type you typeset.

In the end it doesn’t matter whether you load your project/environment 
before or after
\startproduct because there is no difference.
