java.util.logging improvements

There are some modest enhancement requests filed in the bug database at 
Sun to improve the java.util.logging API. For example the addition of 
simpler methods accepting a message and a Throwable:

     log.warn("Unable to do this", e);

or the addition of parametrized messages:

     log.fine("%s logged in", user.getName());

What is required to get this added to the JDK? Does it require a formal 
JSR? Could this be contributed directly as patches to OpenJDK7? Is there 
someone in charge that could be contacted to discuss the proposal?

Thank you,

Emmanuel Bourg
