You need to look beyond the technical issue at hand. 

The use of Orbit typically serves the community at large by:
1. sharing work that you have already done
2. raising visibility/awareness of upcoming changes
3. improving quality through collaboration

There is a dedicated set logging related bundles in Orbit:

It does provide customized metadata for some bundles, which have been evolved over time through collaboration to avoid potentially issues and improve the quality. Updating those bundles/providing new versions typically happens through collaboration. 

By doing everything in your own you are missing an opportunity for collaboration, avoiding mistakes and benefiting from the experience from others.
