Yep, I forgot to mention that!

Agreed.

Its hard to minimize logging, pesky little ips showing up everywhere! In
fact a lot of webapps can take the IPs that are available in the HTTP
headers and store them in their own internal databases for whatever
purposes. Even if you have the access log zeroed out. This is why we use
the apache mod_remove_ip module that will remove them internally before
they get to any application.
