The experienced user can already switch off these messages
completely by means of the variable

suggest-key-bindings

So all I am suggesting is really: if the keybindings are given in
the message area (because suggest-key-bindings is non-nil), then
these messages should also be recorded in the *Messages* buffer.
All this is handled by the built-in function execute-extended-command,
which is why this problem goes beyond my lisp hacking skills.
