Stuffing them behind a command, possibly making them online only in the

If something critical breaks, I can boot to recovery and look at the logs
and changelogs of recently updated packages. Having recent-ish changelogs on
the disk arguably accelerates the fixing process.
I don't think removing recent-ish changelogs from the disk is proposed

Andrey is correct: what is being proposed is just trimming the installed changelogs, not removing them completely. And the full logs will remain in the source packages.
