Thanks for the suggestion.  I think I'll pick 'Emacs in daemon mode' or 'Emacs 
in server mode'.

It should be possible.  But I don't think it's necessarily what most Emacs 
users want or expect.  Maybe it could be added in a future addition or both 
ways could be added, so the users can choose.  The current service file is 
based on the various service files for Emacs I've seen floating around 
(Emacswiki, Arch, wish-list reports).

Thanks for your comments!
