Wrong question since LilyPond does not even touch staves without
remove-empty being set.

\RemoveEmptyStavesFirst would be used in context definitions to tell
LilyPond "iff a user will add \RemoveEmptyStaves, this should include
the first system".

Since the purpose of the predefined context modifications is to lessen
rather than add confusion, I'd recommend not providing this.  Someone
preparing this amount of prepackaged finesse should be able to use the
explicit override instead.
