I agree with what Stefan says: our only practical choice is 2.
Minibuffer messages can legitimately use different fonts in each of
their lines, so using some different font will just move the problem
to other use cases.

In a nutshell, max-mini-window-height sets the limit in pixels, it
just expresses that limit in units of the canonical character height.
