Longer customized boot-up screen messages

It'd be great to be able to write a longer, line-breaks included, custom message for the boot screen.

I believe it would be a useful addition to the community as the end-user could place his name, email and cellphone number. In case the device is lost and someone finds it, that person will have quick access to the owner info and can return it if desired (maybe even add a message to the screen mentioning a reward for doing so).

Currently, the only use for the custom message, considering the present character amount limitation, is to write a fake error message to deceive a third party. But it could be expanded to allow other functions such as the one mentioned above if the user desires.
