How about just a mode-line indicator for ``Something has been added
 to *Messages* without appearing in the echo area''?  

As a starter proposal, we could make something that turns many/all 
of the -'s from %- in mode-line format into !'s, and then bind a command 
to C-h ! that displays the messages.

If color is available, we could splash some on.  If mouse support is 
available, make it clickable.  If tooltips... etc.
