I think, just like with cloak concealment, that it would be beneficial if people could pop out of sneak/hide with visible and have the emote post like so. Currently, it provides an echo, but I see little reason it couldn't be, for instance... (where X is the character name)
visible pops out of the shadows and says, "Boo!"

X pops out of the shadows and says, "Boo!" [Visible]
or, if people decide to /self in the middle,
visible Popping out of the shadows, /self says, "Boo!"

Popping out of the shadows, X says, "Boo!" [X] [Visible]
while defaulting to the current system echo if they choose not to RP out the emote.

EDIT: The thing which made me think about this is, typically if I'm popping out of visible it's because I want to RP to the room. It's very awkward to visible, then have people able to react to my presence prior to the emote, so I have typically written the emotes in advance and done the copypaste dance, while I feel like it could be streamlined like with cloaks.

This would be really nice. Entrances out of stealth (and other... things...) are often inherently dramatic so it makes sense to be able to append an appropriately dramatic entrance.
