This still might not be sufficient to make the package non-ambiguous,
as there's no guarantee that this is really firefox.

Such guarantees are needed for enterprise scenarios with compliance

How about making the log line configurable with a format string ?

Something similar to date(1), with the possibility to add additional
package indentifiers like vendor, signature, etc.
