The problem could be solved by a dynamic proxy. The proxy could 
be the middle man between the test (adding some test helpers and assertions) and the actual Log implementation.
Writing such a proxy should be straight forward, the problem is that afaik there is not way 
in JBoss Logging to change the Log Implementation. Logger.getMessageLogger just uses the name of the specified Log type
and appends ‘$logger’ and tries to load from the classpath.

If they would add a way to specify a custom Log impl (e.g. via a system property) things would become much easier.
