Yeah, it's annoying and creates a bad image for the editor. Just see the original report.

I'd think that much would be obvious.

It's too general and abstract.  Too blanket, too
black-&-white.  Too simplistic, dogmatic.

Sometimes in a dialog what's _wanted_ is to interrupt.
And there are different ways of interrupting, each of
which can be useful, helpful.

If we do get around to having message always delegate to minibuffer-message, there will be another function for "interrupting" messages. It would require you to do some compatibility shimming in your code, though.
