We have thought about it, we just don't have a good solution, yet.
I agree it's better not to spam everyone on the list with several
megs of log file.

In general, we use our bug system to hold data like that.  Don't
worry that something is "not a bug".  If you are wondering about it
and want to get an evaluation from someone at Sun, just file a bug
report and attach your logs.  That way it's safe and we can put an
evaluation on it, and it will get kept for all time, so if the issue
comes up again we can still get to your logs.

At least until we have something better.
