Well, I'll be the first to agree that reducing complexity in configuration and tuning settings is worth aiming for.
But for logging, I'd rather have more settings, theoretically up to one for each possible message. That doesn't increase complexity, as long as it has linear behavior. It's debatable whether that means a new log_something parameter for each situation, or just a single parameter containing some kind of list, or something else, but that's a different problem.
