NEWS says:

** New user option `initial-buffer-choice' specifies what to display
after starting Emacs: startup screen, *scratch* buffer, visiting a
file or directory.

if the code is changed so that emacsclient called with no arguments
displays the startup screen __by default__, then we might have yet
another long discussion if this is the right thing to do.
