Nonadditive composition rules for several physical quantities are treated in thermodynamics. It is argued that the zeroth law defines the existence of their additive forms, the formal logarithms. A further principle, the universal thermostat independence leads to a particular formal logarithm, equivalent to Tsallis entropy Sq. We connect q with generalized susceptibilities of the thermostat.
