I absolutely agree that LGPL or GPL+classpath are valid and reasonablelicenses... it just makes it a little less business friendly.

Does the GPL+classpath allow for writing extensions and plugins for logback that I can license as a non-copyleft license (apache /BSD/X11 or closed source)?

Logback is related to log4j, but it is not an Apache project. The difference in 
license is one way to get the point across. Moreover, LGPL or GPL+classpath 
exception are both valid and reasonable licenses for libraries such as logback.
