I thought that maybe the following hack I've been using for ages (to add
special key bindings to my minibuffer-only frame, such as `f' to
find-file-other-frame) would work as well but it doesn't because the
echo messages are displayed in the same window as the minibuffers, but
in diferent buffers.

(add-hook 'minibuffer-exit-hook
          (lambda ()
            (with-current-buffer (window-buffer (minibuffer-window))
              (set (make-local-variable 'face-remapping-alist)
                   '((default :family "DejaVu Sans" :height 0.75))))))

so you'll need to set this var in all the " *Echo Area N*" buffers,
which is rather ugly.  I don't know how many of them there can be:
I only see 2 here (the 0 and the 1), but maybe there can be more (tho
maybe not, since there can't be recursive echo area messages AFAIK),
