    But if you combine that with the suggestion of making the splash
    screen a separate special frame, the problem you envision goes away:
    the splash screen will show that Emacs is indeed starting up.

I don't see much use in combining them.  If an Emacs frame exists (the
splash frame), having the "real" frame present inconified won't
provide much benefit--and it could make the correct positioning and
sizing harder to implement.
