I should add that doing so is more flexible for debugging too -- for
instance, for reporting a bug with menus, you don't want frame
features turned off, but you _do_ want to disable site-init files.

This scenario (where you want to disable all customization, but not
change emacs' "default state") is probably the most common, so it
makes sense to give -Q that common and clear meaning, and add
something like -N for the rarer case where you suspect the frame
features are interfering.
