So it would seem that it is better for a novice not to use Emacs at
all, and consequently we need not accommodate novices according to
your logic, since they have no business learning Emacs.

Seriously, it does not make sense for Emacs to promote not using Emacs
when doing so is by far the best solution.

But my point was that the novice user might be better of learning Emacs in small steps. It has been fun arguing with you but I think I have said most of what I want to say now.
