A personal view:

Generally, xsl:message is underspecified in many ways, for example, there is
no way of specifying the desired encoding. However, it's clear I think that
the content of xsl:message is intended to be an XML document, and therefore
while it is executing, this document is "the result tree"; and therefore it
is valid it disable output escaping.

However, since the spec says nothing about how the output of xsl:message is
serialized, it's not clear what the semantics of disable-output-escaping
might be.
