I am not aware that other emacs functions that issue messages
allowed one to configure separately whether the message appears in
the message area, and whether it will be recorded in the *Message*
buffer. Probably, this was discussed long time ago when the concept
of having the *Message* buffer was first introduced (and
execute-extended-command should follow here "the usual rules").

I thought that the possiblity to have messages that are not recorded
in the *Messages* buffer was mostly intended for things like
reporting operation progress, where it is rather unlikely one wants
to look back at individual messages.

But maybe I am overlooking something here.
