Assuming you're right, that seems like a wonderful side project. Why
not start a project to build a prepackaged Emacs binary installer for
Windows? Aside from installing DLLs, it could set up other things
(after asking the user, of course), like CUA mode, and other binaries,
like a better ftp than the standard one.

I do really believe that a user-friendly installer for Windows is a
good idea. I strongly *don't* believe the Emacs project should bear
the load of it.
