FWIW, 'emacs -Q' has a much faster start than most of language servers out there. So it shouldn't be a problem. What *would* -- is that most of the language smarts we have implemented for Elisp relies on edited code being loaded in the current session. Which seems hard to synchronize to the external Emacs instance.

But nothing should stop us from adding an additional "transport" for the LSP protocol -- e.g. an in-process one.

It's still probably not a good idea (basing all our IDE features solely on the LSP protocol). See my first message in this thread.
