Hm, forgotten at the moment. I think I have seen this in either "it's
all text" for firefox or the corresponding support for google chrome.
Or was it the downloaded page (C-j) in google chrome that did not
permit adding a parameter. I think at leas the last one.

Command line versions of tools like CVS and SVN usually expect that the file is done being editted when the editor command returns.

If you need to not wait and cannot set parameters, it is fairly simple to still pass the flag.  Just create a .bat file with the contents

emacsclientw --no-wait %1

and use the batch file as the editor command.
