different log levels. This way logging can be off for the whole system while
turned on just to trace an issue with a specific request. Would also be nice
to send back the logging information to the client in the response payload
even on success some way.

Perhaps you should write a spec for an "extended diagnostics" control that can 
be attached to a request, causing more information to be returned to the 
client. In general we don't like to expose too much information in protocol 
responses because that can give away too much knowledge to an attacker. But I 
guess if you have access controls restricting who can use a particular 
control, it would be OK.
