what logical arguments do you have if the developer is living in his
own world where he is happy about every log message "his baby" writes
while at the same time that burries critical and relevant messages for
anybody else who cares?

you can come up with logical arguments in case of interested
developers but not in case of "we do what we want, break what
we want when we want to break it and everything falling left
and right is buggy and wrong" developers

writing thousands of log-lines on a completly stripped down Rawhide
VM with only the default cronjobs *is highly impact-full* because
on production workloads and a central machine receiving all that
messages and store them in a database that is a DOS attack

if there would be a prefix or a specific binary thrwoing all that
messages you could filter them out in rsyslog.conf (by keep useless
overhead burried) but not the way it is implemented

"use journalctl and filter out" is pure ignorance
