It depends on the purpose of --help: seems it is useful mostly when
the user wants to start Emacs from the command line and forgets the
syntax of some options.  In this case the speed of --help is really
important for users.

However, when the user writes a shell script or makefile with Emacs
invocations then it's better to read the Emacs manual with complete
documentation of command line arguments.
