We could use Guix to generate the image contents from scratch, i.e. we
wouldn’t even have to use a “base image” (usually a minimal GNU/Linux
system).  The idea is to export the package closure for the “emacs”
package from the Guix store (this includes all runtime dependencies) and
wrap up the files in a plain docker image.

Arguably there should be a fully free distribution that could be the base for more than just Emacs.
