I thought about this as well and I would also accept it. Having the
"splash-window" a bit smaller would make it less intrusive but still
very visible.

I think I would also be OK with the idle-timer + echo area message idea.

Personally I now mostly start emacs with -Q those times when I want to
make a super quick edit and don't have an instance already running
(starting up with my .emacs takes quite a long time).
