    It is a bad habit to exit Emacs when one might need it soon.  But
    there is nothing to be gained from starting it when one does not
    actually need to edit anything.

The bad habit effect is that if one gets in the habit of visiting a
file by starting Emacs, one will tend to start a new Emacs instead of
going back to the old one -- without thinking about it.

Maybe you have the constant mindfulness to overcome the force
of habit, but many users don't.
