Both, I'd say.

I'll test it ASAP.

I think it is. There's no way to prevent its creation:

  C:\temp> set HOME=C:\temp
  C:\temp> dir
                  0 bytes in 0 files and 0 dirs

  C:\temp> emacs -Q --eval "(setq user-emacs-directory \"C:/otherdir/\")"
  C:\temp> dir
  1/09/2009  22:29         <DIR>    .emacs.d
                   0 bytes in 0 files and 1 dir

while before, simply doing "emacs -Q" followed by C-x C-c wouldn't
create ~/.emacs.d/.
