Good question. UGLI will consist mostly of interfaces to be
implemented by others, log4j for one.

Given that the UGLI will cater for libraries implemented as POJOs,
there is a need to standardize the logger creation mechanism. However,
this does not mean that IoC techniques could not be used to inject
logger instances into the POJO.

Questions regarding configuration of logger contexts are outside the
scope of UGLI.

BTW, you can see an initial draft in
