Only if its something that is important to have associated in reports. More 
that 1 or 2 hyphens is probably not good.

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

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.
