Hi Shane

I think some of your concerns relate to 'tipping off' the suspect that they may be being watched, but of course, increased logging doesn't do that.

The general principle "don't collect all the data all the time" seems pretty relevant, and as a recommendation, not terribly harmful. Basically, if you can justify what and why you are collecting, the spec says 'ok'.
