I believe the point of the bat file is to make it easier to have a
launcher for Octave, for those who want to have an icon to click. If you
want to run Octave as a script interpreter, you should be able to use
the executable without the bat file.

But if you want to report these discrepancies as bugs, please use the
bug tracker:

The octave.exe or octave-4.0.0.exe executables should handle this
option. It's the same as running octave-cli directly. If it doesn't,
this could also be reported as a bug.
