    A splash screen, whether hardwired or a hacked emacs frame that avoids
    the initial-settings issues would seem to take care of "users will get
    worried" issues.

A special splash screen would address that issue.

It is useful that there is a real Emacs frame
during loading the init file.  You get to see progress
messages, and you also can use it in the case of an error
in the init file.

If messages from `message' get displayed in the splash screen,
and if error messages get displayed in a real Emacs frame if
the init file fails, than might be good enough.
