Only if its something that is important to have associated in reports. More

The audit logs should be short as possible but contain everything necessary. 
You can have language in the record that makes it more understandable for 
people reading the raw record, but it won't necessarily be picked up by 
report parsers for searching or presentation.

If you want me to help review the choices, let me know offline and we can work 
through it.
