This is something I do when sysadmining.  I'd have to alter root's
.emacs file on all the 80+ GNU Linux machines we have here to get rid of
the splash screen.

I just feel that this change is kinda annoying, and I think it's going
to be annoying (and confusing) for lots of people who have a similar
usage pattern.  (I.e., people who don't use Emacs for programming or
writing big texts, but people who ssh to a machine, do a tiny tweak to a
specific file, and then log out again.  Which is typical when doing
sysadmin tasks.)

(domestic pets only, the antidote for overdose, milk.)
