It's just occurred to me that the binary format may not work with append
only logging?

Also recovering those logs from a possibly intentionally
uncompletely wiped disk would be much harder especially on an ext3/ext4
filesystem where carving is required when otherwise you could image or
ddrescue in case of hardware failure and use grep.
