Yeah, the bulk of the text is trying to add specific information elements to derive the source entity generating the log message (mapped to any possible combination of cloud service model, SaaS, PaaS, etc.), and identifying any individual entity to which a log message should ultimately identified with (if any).
If we're planning on any "fixed" syntax portion of a log message (that means any pre-defined message header information that is always present in a log message), we may want to include an optional "cloud" information element that is a container for any and all information elements that will be finalized by IETF activity in this area.
