The log entries looked fine when AFT5 was still deployed. They look odd now because it was removed, so there's really nothing that can be fixed in the extension at this point. The core logging code may be fixable.

I think the log_title could be incorporated somehow.

Couple of things here:

(1) The core fallback logging code could really be improved. It could print something like
User (talk | contribs) performed unknown action "..." on [[Main Page]] ($4, $5, ...)
Not sure about old vs. new log entry styles though...

(2) Even though AFTv5 has been uninstalled from enwiki, the log formatter should still be provided. I think this can be done through the WikimediaMessages extension. I'll file a task for that.
