That will not make the applications more verbose about the actual
severity, neither make them use a more standardized format that could
more easily be parsed by log utilities such as syslog.

Why is syslog to be used for central logs only? Shouldn't a good log
system provide logging centralized as well as non-centralized?
Maybe the apache people would like to do remote logging, like syslog
supports, too? Why do they need to write own solutions for this?
