IIUC, no-display is useful for calling refresh from outside of emacs, e.g.
from post-new hook in an automated fashion, so you can have an up-to-date
buffer when you switch to it. There's no point in displaying the refresh
message when you don't also switch to the buffer, is there? And this way
you'll get the diff between the manual (through user interaction) refreshes
of the buffer, not between two cron jobs.
