You could try

<xsl:message select="serialize($value, map{ 'method':'adaptive' })"/>

The "adaptive" serialization method is new in 3.1, the specification is still
not 100% stable, and the Saxon implementation may not be final. It's designed
to allow anything to be serialized without any failures.

The fn:serialize() function with a map argument is also new in 3.1, it's in
draft specs that are not yet published, but implemented in Saxon 9.7.

xsl:message itself is still specified as producing XML output. Perhaps we
should have changed that.
