I don't think there are any log data in XML.  I'll ask the XLF members

I do not expect XLF to be much more verbose than average XML because
regularity in log data can be taken advantage of.  For example, timestamps
can be abbreviated by logging absolute time first and then logging relative
time subsequently.  Following is a link to my "Time and Time Again" proposal
which I proposed on the XLF mailing list:
