I think that would be a good approach.

Yes, if I put my corporate hat on I think that Qpid management needs
to be able to integrate (somehow) with widely used enterprise
monitoring tools - SCOM, Tivoli etc. In my current organisation,
software (particularly infrastructure components like messaging) are
very hard to introduce if they don't integrate with the established
monitoring infrastructure.

Yes, that would be a good idea since all (that I have seen) enterprise
monitoring tools can leverage syslog.
