Subject Re: Logging Domains committed to sandbox (dodgy cvs spam email address though)

My understanding of the motivation of "markers" is to provide a  
mechanism to provide explicit context (for example, IP address of  
current request) for a logging call which supplements the implicit  
context extracted from the current thread (contents of MDC and NDC,  
thread name, call stack).  The primary use for the explicit context  
is likely to provide information to be recorded in the log with a  
secondary use to provide information to be used by filters.

The motivation of logging domains appears to be to identify concerns  
that cut across the established hierarchy and the expected use  
appears to be as an aid to configuration.
