Yes, worth it. I guess lots of people are going to try Whonix-Host inside a virtual machine before considering installation on real hardware. That's why I even would like to have ability to run Whonix-Host inside VirtualBox.
Please post new tickets in forums as per:

Just built 220.127.116.11.6-developers-only
Great! Will try to build tomorrow and report back... asap :)
Please add your build commands to Whonix wiki Dev/Whonix-Host, then I can add suggestion there how to improve these.
Not sure what you mean here?
That's probably because of T950. You'd need to remove both:
I see. But I won't lose time to debug this particular build, I will just try a new one and see if the problem persists. Had some problems with lack of space on the VM I am building with, maybe related. Not worth debugging if it's a one time thing. We'll see.

Done, as well as further additions.
Seems I have quite a flexible notion of "asap" :)...

Added upload access also just now. Please try upload image.
Done. Waiting for approval. Still uncompleted, will add instruction step by step.
I also wanted to add some pictures but I think I don't have sufficient rights...
Yes, by all means. Please do.
Generally, most non-controversial (and this one certainly is) wiki edits can be done without prior asking.
Glad that you liked it!
If you don't mind, I can already start modifying the Wiki page:
Warning: Whonix-Host is experimental software and still in early development. It is currently still lacking some core features, such as persistent installation in EFI mode or a working firewall on the Host, and is not yet ready for production, nor intended for end-users, only developers. Please see https://forums.whonix.org/t/whonix-host-developers-only-preview-version-15-0-1-2-7-released/9360 for more information on its development state. Help welcome.
What is Whonix-Host?
Whonix-Host is a complete Operating System provided by Whonix developers specifically designed to run Whonix virtual machines ("Whonix-Gateway" and "Whonix-Workstation").

Works fine in 18.104.22.168.2-developers-only.
xfce4-power-manager is installed on Whonix-Host in 22.214.171.124.2-developers-only.
Fixed in 126.96.36.199.2-developers-only.
Setting quiet loglevel=0 in that exact order as per https://github.com/Whonix/security-misc/commit/6485df8126b52a2072824fa442e8d1dd5cb18981 does now hide [sda] Incomplete mode parameter data. However, messages by LKRG are not yet hidden.
Great news! I am rebuilding the whole package Host+gw+ws now, excited to test it out! Will report asap.

That would be OK but this is not my preferred solution. Reason: an unclean shutdown in Whonix installed persistent mode would with a subsequent boot into live mode would result in a failed reboot into Whonix installed live mode.
Awesome analysis and description!
Likely fixed in next build already. Updated, relevant code is here:
Not 100% sure it would also be fixed inside VMs.
Excellent work. Thanks for researching this!
Some progress made as of Whonix-Host 188.8.131.52.7:
As of Whonix-Host 184.108.40.206.7 each environment (Host, gw, ws) has its own background color.
Should we close this ticket?
Do we need more tests or can we close this ticket?
Also, just tried it on Whonix-Host 220.127.116.11.7. It works.

Even kernel parameter quiet loglevel=3 rd.systemd.show_status=auto rd.udev.log_priority=3
does not hide [sda] Incomplete mode parameter data.
