Can I choose where System Status messages are displayed (in the same way as Alerts)?

Yes, to an extent. The System Status messsage will always display in the Toolbar and ToolPanel but you can additionally provide a Div (in Container Options) where it will display.

Alternatively you can listen to the SystemStatusMessageDisplayed Event and display messages where required.
