It seems to me there are two distinct questions here:

1) Does the messaging mechanism require eye travel?

2) Does the messaging mechanism obscure the content?

The minibuffer fails the first test, which was your original complaint.

A messaging system that *inserted itself* into the display, shifting the
content down or otherwise out of the way (strictly for display; the content
would be untouched), would pass both tests.
