To comment on the unit file itself:

I think something which hints that this provides a shared instance
of emacs would be better than this generic blurb.
Maybe say something like 'Emacs in shared mode' or something. Also
keep in mind that this string is used in 'Starting %s...', 'Started %s.'
messages, so there should not be a dot a the end, and it really should
be a single phrase.

Would it be possible to make emacs socket-activated? This would be
a nice optimization, and the daemon could be configured to start
lazily, on first connection.
