[erlang-questions] erl_nif environment in the load() function

There is code as example:

I have few questions:
1. How long is env's lifetime in the load(...)? Will the env be erased
after the call or after module unloading?
2. Is this code valid?

ERL_NIF_TERM ustring_endian(ErlNifEnv* env, int argc,
                            const ERL_NIF_TERM argv[]) {
    return ATOM_ENDIAN;

Is the next construction better?

return enif_make_copy(env, ATOM_ENDIAN);
