You're right.

That' a bit more difficult if the Emacs invocation is not typed into
the command line, but comes from another tool.

That it works in both cases. So you can have a .BAT somewhere (perhaps
called from another tool) that runs emacsclient to do a diff, and it
does not need to know whether Emacs is already running or not, and
does not start multiple Emacs instances. I'd say that's an advantage.
