while the logging verbosity is something that is in the responsibility
of the project (at least for now), prefixing output or not is decided
by the logger. Having a doc:prefix, logprefix, whatever attribute
doesn't make sense if I use a different logger.

pluggable but also something that is front end specific? Don't think
