It does have a _default_ set of log files, which should be rotated by default.
Apache doesn't have a fixed set of log files, either, but it uses logrotate
just fine.  As far as that goes, so does the syslog-ng syslogd replacement.

It doesn't seem unreasonable to expect that if you change log file locations
that you should/would have to change logrotation configuration, and having
syslogd be seperate and special is just adding confusion without much gain.
