Not exactly.  When you use VM, you get to use what you might call
vm-mail-mode, which is built on top of mail-mode.  To "use" message-mode
with VM, VM has to be modified to do that, which is on our To-do list but it
is of low priority at this point.

VM doesn't really "need" message-mode because it does its own MIME
processing.  So, until the basic SMTP protocol changes, we will be fine with
the existing mail-mode.  If Emacs stops shipping mail-mode, we will ship it
ourselves with VM, which is allowed under the GPL licensing.

What keystroke can send you into message-mode?  You mean, if you run `C-x m'
before you load VM, you get message-mode?  If that is an issue, you might
want to bind `C-x m' in your .emacs.
