The problem here is a matter of one expert shooting multiple newbies
in the foot.

    That's ok with me (I know how to inhibit the splash screen for the machines
    where I do this).

It sounds like you're saying that the splash screen warning won't
solve the problem.

But perhaps I have misunderstood.  Does "do this" refer to setting up
your PC for you to use it under various different names, or does it
refer to getting Emacs newcomers started using nonstandard bindings?
