I'm mostly with Stephen on this.  As the names stand, they encourage
people to go look at the documentation,
which will provide more information than you'd ever get out of any
reasonable directory name.

Having said that, I still don't like "pg_logical", but I suppose
renaming it would have more downsides than upsides.
