Wouldn't that kind of message be a perfect candidate for a warning instead? Warnings are underused in Emacs now, but they have advantages, like the ability to filter them by level/priority.

The warnings are shown in its own buffer (and window), but by using fit-to-buffer and the new window machinery we could perhaps make them less jarring and still hard to miss.
