Well, user might not know what he/she wants next time when he/she logs on. That is why there is an option called "Display chooser on login" in "Session and Startup" settings. Personally I have one session that I keep empty for fast logins. You could alternatively create a new session for that purpose every time you want to start with an empty session, and not save that session on logout, but you would have to name the session at start.

I would like to be able to save session by name within a session. I would also like to be able to see which is the name of the session I am using. And I would like to be able to clear a session by its name. Currently I can only find a way to clear all saved sessions at once in the settings.
