We are using component/severity, too. I decided to interpret the channel
as component. Some sample code is attached to my review:
After some preparation in the init function, developers can do the
src::severity_channel_logger<severity_level> lg1(keywords::channel = "FirstComponent");
BOOST_LOG_SEV(lg1, trace) << "A trace severity message";
BOOST_LOG_SEV(lg1, debug) << "A debug severity message";

I second that (and, if that were is possible in English, I'd third and
forth that). Logging must not fail until the machine crumbles to dust.
Especially: No message must be lost.
I know that is not really possible, but providing a very high level of
certainty that messages do not get lost is of extreme importance.
