I personally do not find it inconvenient.  Emacs displays many
messages in the echo area that are worth reading, even if tooltip-mode
is enabled.  So I am used to pay attention to that area.  Moreover, if
something changes on my screen while everything else stays static, my
eyes automatically seem to shift to the area that changed anyway.  For
me this is pretty much an automatic reaction.  There is no conscious
effort involved.
