What is this screw?

Alright, I've been racking my brain, and I can't figure out for the life of me WHY this screw is here.  What is its purpose???  Can't be fender, as there's one above that would make more sense.  Please, someone tell me.  :)

    I believe it is for a fender.  The one on top would be used for rim brakes if you weren't using disc brakes.

    Yep it's for a fender. It is a bit too far away for typical fenders, so a piece of aluminum flat bar is needed to extend the fender mount point.

    Recently added fenders from Bacchetta to my new Giro A20 but used the upper screw. Wondered why the attachment piece was so long. Should be just right for the screw below. Will try that out later today and post images. D'oh!
    (Removed the rubber fender extenders by drilling out the rivets. Can be added back if needed later.)
    Before - Using upper attachment point

     
    After - using lower attachment point
