What kind of problem does the business see with force logging? What transactions do you have that they require nologging on that is critical to the business?

That is, are you fighting a theoretical or real problem? Force logging is that because it is needed. You cannot invent data that is now written to the log files. Manual or not, you'll have the same need to have logging occur.

I think you are better off dealing with the actual issue, rather than something that seems to an opinion not based on hard data.
