Is there a way to separate boot and shutdown messages from the Plymouth splash?

As far as I could make out, Plymouth maintains (owns) the boot and shutdown consoles, and perhaps this is what causes text mode messages to get interspersed with the splash screen at boot and especially shutdown time (e.g., at shutdown/reboot I often get text messages like "watchdog did not stop" etc.). Is there any way to separate the messages from the splash screen itself so that only the splash screen is visible and not the messages, for example, by forcing them to output on different consoles (ttys)?
