Yeah. I just wonder why nobody has done it and whether it would not be
a better approach.

IIUC people do it all the time, tho not with another Emacs process: with
an hexl process, a shell process, an openssl process, ...
Emacs currently is not very good at using stdin/stdout so running an
inferior Emacs process is poorly supported.

I've sometimes thought a command-line option to provide a REPL (read- eval-print loop) interface would be handy. Either directly in Emacs, or via the client/server interface... much like interactive emacs lisp mode, but purely on the command line.
