As you know, log4j is a Java based logging framework, which runs alongside your application in your chosen JVM.

So the Apache web front end over that framework should not be a factor over supportability as you put it.

The reported exploits appear to manipulate request headers, so don't consider it practical to try and filter the headers before the request gets passed to the back end. Updating log4j is the correct approach to this security problem.
