Yes, though the emacs-25 branch already has something like that in nt/README.W32

  + runemacs.exe - A wrapper for running Emacs as a GUI application
    without popping up a command prompt window.  If you create a
    desktop shortcut for invoking Emacs, make it point to this
    executable, not to emacs.exe.

It's talking about a desktop shortcut and not the taskbar, but it is the same idea. Perhaps change it to "If you create a desktop shortcut for invoking Emacs, or pin Emacs to the taskbar, modify the shortcut so it points to this executable, not to emacs.exe". Or something like that.
