*Messages* is a general-purpose feature that lets you do all sorts of
things with echo area messages, including copy them.  Having
general-purpose features like this makes Emacs cleaner and simpler
than having many special-purpose features for doing various jobs of
this kind.

Instead of making and documenting some special-purpose features for
copying messages from calendar commands, we should document that you
can do it by going to the *Messages* buffer.
