Costin, XML is fine but the fact that we use all kinds of cases in the
XML tags gives a very laboratory feel to Tomcat (although it has nothing
to do with functionality). If that can be made consistent (just the names
and cases of all the loggers) that would be great.

IMHO it would be nice to not have any subsystem format its own output;
leave it to the logger instead. But these kinds of things can wait.
