I agree.  EventLogging is a useful tool for the WMF, but it is not a substitute
for MediaWiki's built-in logging.

Built-in logging is important for third-party MW installs, on-wiki users
(though obviously not everything is visible to all users), and the
pages-logging.xml.gz dumps (though of course, what to dump requires

Backwards compatibility is important, but it's not the only thing.  Sometimes
we have to break it to move forward.

As noted, I think it can be solved for built-in logging either way (with or
without backwards compatibility); they have different advantages.
