I've seen that - but it didn't really translate into actionable
recommendations for me.

In any case, any costly operations based on these log files
should now be cheap, now that the log files are empty.

So I rather wonder whether there is any significant loss
of functionality. If the recommendation would have been
to restrict access to that functionality, anyway, I guess
the answer is "no".
