I can see the value of not needing any cron daemon to remove old logs.

No other logs on your system to purge?

The DBA isn't necessarily also root.

Interesting this argument comes from you.. :-)

Tasks like purging old log files is certainly not a job that needs to be implemented in the backend; instead, an external database maintenance agent should do that.

You must have misunderstood something here. The proposal doesn't implement any logfile purging feature, but allows to setup a configuration that automatically overwrites files in a rotating manner, if the DBA so desires. I can't see how you're jumping to logfile purging from that.
