From a short google on groups it seems that the emacs developers find
emacsW32 ("EmacsW32 is not Emacs for MS Windows. Instead it is an

features extensive customization: it will feel and behave mostly like
an Aqua program").

I know nothing about Aquamacs, so I cannot say. The point, anyway, is
not whether the program has features which help it to blend with its
environment. I'm arguing that Emacs on Windows is not harder to use or
learn that Emacs on GNU/Linux or other environments, so changes to
"help the user" seem like gratuitous divergences to me unless there's
a *specific* need (window manager integration, keyboard handling,
etc.).
