These are undisputedly very good reasons.  In some ways I hate to admit
that, but I find I can often avoid to start X11 and the associated
memory churn simply because I now have emacs-w32.  Just the experience
of one user, nothing more.

That would be even better, yes.  And perhaps make that a point in the
next announcement so hopefully more people are aware of it.  It isn't
difficult to change the priorities once you know that emacs is in fact
using the alternatives system.
