I've seen a couple of new Emacs users the last 17 years.
After few month all of them have begun to start Emacs without
file name argument, when they have learned to use more features
(dired for instance).

Does it really matter if they see the splash screen few month
after the first start of Emacs?
Or do you think my experience with new users is not the usual
