I'm not entirely sure how the migration of the XML logging will be done. Perhaps it will be preceded by an RFE to add better support for XML outputs in the unified logging framework, or it might just be treated as a regular text file.

Yes. The log configuration allows you to specify exactly which tags on 
what level should go to which output. This is all described in the JEP.
