They differ from all other attributes in determining whether to log a message in the *very* common severity/component scheme. You are within your rights to say otherwise for Boost.Log, but you will need to defend performance and complexity differences between Boost.Log and systems supporting severity/component in order to sway users to Boost.Log. I expect this will be a FAQ for Boost.Log.
