It's required for support purposes. When something goes wrong we collect all 
the logs from the hosts, this way we can figure out whats wrong without 
requiring someone to reproduce the problem with the logging turned on.

We are working on making the logs easier to filter when inspecting them.
But the general idea is, if the information is in when can easily get it out, 
but doing it the other way around is impossible.

In a nutshell order to filter out debug messages grep -v is you friend.
