I think it might be a good idea to use a different face for these
temporary messages, but you can currently do this:

(minibuffer-message (propertize "Foo" 'face 'bold))

And overwriting the specified face isn't a good idea.  But perhaps it
could apply a default face to the string if no face has already been
set?
