I don't think that using the same format as the principal output makes very much sense - why should it be the same? However, I can see an argument for providing some control. Some people only ever use xsl:message for simple text messages, in which case escaping < and > doesn't make much sense; but if you use it to output chunks of XML, like <xsl:message>Value of $tree: <xsl:copy-of select="$tree"/></xsl:message> then using the XML output method makes much more sense.
