CEE is supposed to be releasing a 1.0beta spec, and the initial fields planned are documented at https://fedorahosted.org/lumberjack/wiki/FieldList#Unifie...
for the API, the initial focus is on trying to get a good C API that can replace the syslog() call. RedHat has a largish project that they've been calling ELAPI (Enhanced Logging API https://fedorahosted.org/ELAPI/wiki/WikiPage/Architecture ) that they are now realizing largely overlaps with the capabilities of the modern syslog daemons, so they are going though the code they wrote for that and ripping out lots of it to only keep what's needed. There is some question of if the result is still in the 'sledgehammer to swat a fly' category and so you have lumberlog working from the other direction
