Why is syslog to be used for central logs only? Shouldn't a good log

No. I don't see the need for a centralized facility for 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?
Fear not, you *can* syslog with apache, if that's something you need.
Most people wouldn't want to do that because the apache logs are so high
volume, but it can be done.
You're just not presenting a real compelling case for throwing out a
widely-adopted standard. Your main argument seems to be that the default
syslogd throws out too much information, which is correct but doesn't
logically lead to ditching syslog altogether.
