I'd like to have a way to start Emacs with "emacs -Q" and have it not
to load the values from the Windows registry.

Adding a new command line option is easy, but I'm looking for the
best, non-Windows-specific way. How it's Emacs currently forced to
ignore X settings?

If you mean X resource database settings, I suspect they are always used unless you go all the way and -nw

_However_ you can override them on the command line with --xrm i.e even if I have 'Emacs.Fontbackend: xft' in my x resource database, I can still do
$ emacs -Q --xrm 'Emacs.FontBackend: x'
and enjoy awful font rendering.

looking at w32_make_rdb(), --xrm may work on w32 to override
registry settings? (untested).
