Yes, I think this would be a good idea also in final releases. Even
though it would currently be impossible to read the message and then
hit the key, it still means the user knows what to do on the next boot

I know the following is hard to implement, but would it also be
possible to allow pressing the key further into the boot process?
Could pressing the key, say upto the point where Haiku starts mounting
file systems in write mode, somehow back out of the boot and offer the
boot menu instead?
