In the past, that may have been true, but now I think beginners are more
likely to start Emacs from a menu on their desktop. Especially now that
the startup screen does not disappear on the first input event,
displaying it when the user gives a filename on the command-line is
annoying, and annoying your users is not a good way to get a message across.
