Beginners would hardly be using emacsclient.  Restricting the splash
screen to once per Emacs session is quite enough.

Anyway, _beginners_ would be clicking some icon to start Emacs, not
use a command line.

The GNU project should be fine with once a session.  Having
emacsclient frames for something like commit messages triggered from
C-x v v show the splash screen is plainly disruptive.
