I may miss something, but it does not look [for me] any more specific
in comparison with headline format:

- headline :: "^\*+ .+$"
- first line of note :: "^[ \t]*-.+\\\\$"

Body of the note can be extracted using existing item parser (removing
the first line).

Agree. The syntax may allow arbitrary first line instead of limiting it
to `org-log-note-headings'. Though `org-log-note-headings' can still be
used to define special types of notes - not a part of syntax, but for
org-mode functionality in Emacs.

Best,
Ihor
