Oh give me a break, so many things are turned off by raising the LogLevel
that this is running blind.  In fact the whole LogLevel thing still hasn't
been cleaned up imho -- we get worse reports from default 1.3 than we did
from 1.2.  "worse" in the sense that a lot of useful information is just
not logged.

"audited access files" ?  If anything the error logs are not audited, and
this is already represented in the access_log by a lower bytes_sent.  I
don't buy any of this argument.
