You want to make the Emacs frame displayed due to an emacsclient
request show emacsclient as its "exec"?  But then what happens if the
user uses that frame for displaying other windows and buffers, which
have nothing to do with the original emacsclient request?

Here’s an example of a feature enabled by the startup notification protocol.

When a user clicks on an icon for an application in a desktop’s launcher, the 
launcher will provide feedback to the user that something is happening, perhaps 
by changing the pointer to the “busy” indicator.  That feedback will be cleared 
once the application displays a window.  For the launcher to know when to clear 
the feedback, it needs to know that a particular window is associated with a 
particular application launch.

So, in the case you describe, where the user goes on to display other buffers, 
nothing happens, and that’s fine.
