Yes, please do it.  Anyhow, the `emacs/etc/TODO' file already has
the following item:

* Add a --pristine startup flag which does -q --no-site-file plus
  ignoring X resources (Doze equivalents?) and most of the
  environment.  What should not be ignored needs consideration.

BTW, it would be good to add also a short option -D as equivalent
to --debug-init because this is a frequently used option.  And also
to add a new display options --no-blinking-cursor and -nbc to
disable blinking cursor.
