The reason we introduced those properties was that bugtrackers could
parse the log messages and find the associated bug id better. And to do
that, we had to define that the bug id _must_ be in a separate line
either at the beginning or the end of the log message. Without that, you
simply can't parse the bug id with 100% accuracy.

With those XML style log messages, it would be possible to really find
the bug id even in the middle of a log message. But 'normal' log
messages don't look like this, and so it wouldn't be possible to extract
the bug id accurately.
