Why can't you ask there in the shell 'are you serious?'

Because that is the behavior I expect.  When I send SIGINT to a process, I want

it to terminate.

Perhaps you should write your own script that traps SIGINT before calling Emacs,
and handles the signal the way you want.

As an example of the crap effects,
$ emacs file #and in that file type 3 short lines, then back in the shell:

Where did your three lines go?  not even a #file# backup!
Why can't you at least auto-save when you get such a signal?
