Default log level

I have syslogd configured to dump everything on tty12
and warnings and up on tty11

Well, I wonder, why there's so much warnings out there?
Most messages I see on tty11 are purely informative.
>From kernel/printk.c I learned that KERN_WARNING
is default log level. I think most developers use explicit
KERN_WARNING when they want to warn user.

What about switching default log level to KERN_NOTICE?

Please CC me. I'm not on the list. Really! :-)

Best regards,
