Vinay Sajip added the comment:

Those signatures have **kwargs for potential extension of the logging API 
itself (without extending the existing argument list), not for passing 
arguments to filters.

You can already filter completely flexibly by passing additional values  in the 
"extra" parameter, which writes those to the LogRecord. This can  be inspected 
by filters in the same way as you propose, so there seems no reason to provide 
another way of doing this.

N.B. Removed larry from the nosy list, as he was apparently added by accident 
when the "Argument Clinic" component was selected in error.
