Thanks.  This means that this option multi-message-transient is useful after 
BTW, I customized it to "^Mark\\|\\.\\.\\.\\'" to skip mark-related messages
like "Mark set" and "Mark deactivated".

Now what remains to do is to combine multi-message feature with 
so when the minibuffer is not active then multi-line messages are displayed
in the echo-area, otherwise multi-line messages are displayed at the end
of the minibuffer:

(defun set-multi-message--wrapper (orig-fun message)
  (let* ((multi-message (set-multi-message message)))
    (or (funcall orig-fun multi-message)

(setq set-message-function 'set-minibuffer-message)
(add-function :around set-message-function #'set-multi-message--wrapper)
