    There should be parameter in the ArcMap Advanced Settings Utility to specify a startup script to run whenever ArcGIS is initiated.

    Also, we should be able to access the default startup script as a starting point, so that we can prevent loading of ancillary modules, toolboxes or functions we are not licensed for since it just increases startup times. 

    A custom script would also allow us to define custom functions to run prior to opening ArcMap, like a one-way Geodatabase Synchronization, a user authentication,  a user message, so on and so forth.
