Normal programs contact syslog using normal POSIX mechanisms. The
low-level Hurd servers however work below the POSIX environment -- they
are responsible for *implementing* these mechanisms.

You need to find a way for syslog to get information from the low-level
servers directly. I can think of various ways to do it; but it's not as
trivial as you seem to believe.
