IMO a default severity level is not a good idea, not explicit to 
begin with.
As i suggested on another reply, getting rid of the 
instantiations solve it.

We lose nothing and gain a common keyword. I used to have 
severity levels for my logging library in c++. As soon as i got 
the C++0x options i thrashed them all.

Now instead of:

txt(error) << "this is: " << it;

i just got:

error("this is: ", it);

Win win for every aspect of it. And got rid of the keyword "txt".
