Hmmm, that works (at first glance anyway).
[Using the command:  emacsclient -a '' -c -n]

I do notice a few issues:

  (1) Mode-line contains an "@", apparently meaning "emacsclient-invoked"

      When using this method of startup, _everything_ is
      emacsclient-invoked, so the "@" indicator is pointless

      Pointless indicators are annoying regardless, but this one is
      especially annoying because a mode-line "@" is _also_ used by
      tramp to indicate that the cwd of a buffer is "remote" (and that's
      the sense I'm used to, so seeing "@" in the mode-line triggers
      "uh-oh" instincts).

      It seems that it should be used more judiciously -- e.g., only for
      frames corresponding to files or for which -n wasn't specified.

      I don't know the exact formulation, but anyway, something that
      actually makes it useful instead of distracting.

      Maybe the potential confusion with tramp usage is also worth

  (2) The startup message "When done with this frame, type C-x 5 0" is
      vaguely irritating -- again, it seems aimed at "short-lived"

  (3) I'm not sure what I think about being able to delete the last
      frame; I guess I'd get used to it since it doesn't lose state...


Once, adj. Enough.
