upload sounds a bit of a batch process, but thats just cosmetic wording.
Having this in systems-journald and extend the forward to syslog config with the target
host was our expectation anyway.

it would be great to have at least the following format to send to syslog:
"<%pri%>%protocol-version% %timestamp:::date-rfc3339% %HOSTNAME% %app-name% %procid% %msg%\n"
described as rsyslog configuration. All the meta infos are there IMHO.

I think so as well.
