Well, a couple thoughts on that:

     1. If you want logging with file:// access, you are already
        setting up permissions properly to provide file:// access,
        so this isn't a large barrior IMHO.

     2. If you care about the security/validity of the log, then
        you'll likely use svnserve or mod_dav so that users don't
        need direct access to the log file(s).

In short, I don't think write access to log files is a major
issue for file:// usage.
