It could be useful to indicate the variety of log file types. I assume that
HTPP logs will be the favorite. [Example: I spend my time grepping the VSMS
server logs to see what percentage of JUMBO2 downloads break - by using the
byte count. ] Are you anticipating the elementTypes will be as detailed as
<ByteCount> or more general like <Transaction>? [I assume the latter, with
additional means of qualification through attributes.]
