Absolutely I want that. I want to be able to write in *Messages*. Yes, I can
toggle read-only, but if `q' quits, then that defeats the purpose.

I sometimes find myself with tons of messages being logged, and when I make
several successive tests I sometimes type stuff in Messages to distinguish test
sequences etc. And I kill sections of text there, or copy text (including text
I've added) to other buffers, and so on.

What's wrong with `C-x 0' (or `C-x k')?

Please do not make *Messages* read-only. Likewise, *Pp Eval Output*.
