Yes, it's intentional to allow Maildir and IMAP to allow MUAs to work progressively while loading similar to how less(1) and typical web browsers work. It's not really practical to do for mbox* because of locking and potential incompatible locking protocols. You should be able to use --alert=COMMAND to run any arbitrary command(s) (including an MUA, as an alternative to --mua). I'm not sure if adding a --no-early-mua switch is needed. My gut reaction is having yet another switch to document increases the learning curve and support overhead... *shrug*
