Indeed, but in the specific context of that scene, the implication is obvious. RTD leaves it ambiguous intentionally, but there's only one sensible interpretation why the writer would include that bit of business there.
I doubt that was RTD's "sensible interpretation," though, as RTD intended the ninth Doctor as the Time War Doctor, and you can't square that with the Doctor have a post-regeneration moment in "Rose."
I'm intrigued why you would imagine the writer would put it in then? What was his intention?
I've always speculated that it wasn't actually part of the script but rather Eccleston ad-libbed it on set. But there supposedly is proof that it was in the script.
