You forgot the option for displaying *scratch* on startup.  Perhaps nil
should do that, and I think it should be the default value.

FWIW, I have as the last line of .emacs:

  (dired "~")

that allows me immediately after startup navigate to the necessary
directory and to open/create files in it.  And *scratch* still exists,
coming up after pressing `q' in the initial dired buffer.  So I welcome
a new option to customize this.
