No, -n is standard already, with a required argument. Those using it as
just a flag are non-conforming. See link above.

One can always buy 6 VGA monitors and stack them vertically if they want
300 lines of desktop, which tcgetwinsize() may report as available lines,
yet many terminals say ok, I'll save 150 (-n) but only show you 30 lines
(LINES) at a time so I don't have to span screens, even if this may be
using 50 lines for some VGA modes (which would be indicated in TERM
somehow). 

Doing scrolls out of RAM is still quicker than having to read a disk
multiple times, if it's only buffering 30 lines, and how some background
applications might be using the other 20 lines and 5 monitors is the user's
choice. Yes, when you only have 24 line screens there's little point to
using fewer, but "screens" supporting over 600 lines are plausible now for
under USD10K.
