That's just a non-implemented feature. Emacs has been running on
Windows for years without emacsclient, and people make do with
gnuserv/gnuclient. Of course I think it'd be very nice to have it
working (else I wouldn't be hacking emacsclient right now), but I
hardly would consider it "a major problem".

That has been done in the past. There were NT Emacs 20.X releases that
weren't synchronized with non-NT Emacs releases.
