"messages VT" would have a scrollback buffer. Would that be possible?

Already implemented.

suse/master:config/x86_64/default:CONFIG_VGACON_SOFT_SCROLLBACK=y
suse/master:config/x86_64/default:CONFIG_VGACON_SOFT_SCROLLBACK_SIZE=64

My experience is that scroll buffer is available only as long as you
stay on vt. When you switch from it and back again you cannot scroll
past screen content anymore.

Agree.

FWIW, recent a patchset was merged to have a persistent scroll buffer,
so it'll be fixed in 4.11.
