I don't understand the problem here. Do

LogLogPlot[x^5, {x, .01, 10}]

Note, the axis ticks are incremented as if base 10 were used.
Why does it matter that Mathematica uses base e internally to
create the plot? Any one who uses the plot will clearly use the
scales Mathematica provides. Tagging data with a Tooltip causes
it to report the actual value, not the log of the value in
either base.
