There's almost no performance penalty. Most performance is lost because
developers don't write their logging code well.

Eventually, yes, it could become universal. But I hope you're aware of
how many people are still using JDK 1.1 today. The decision to drop JDK
1.1 support in FOP was something that not everyone welcomed. The same
will happen with the transition to JDK 1.4.
