I was not involved with the discussions, but a few things come to mind
1. the data you want to log may include structures
2. you may need to log multiple data items of the same type (like a list of filesnames)
you can always choose to flatten a hierarchical structure if you need to, but it's much harder to re-create the structure after you have flattened it
not all storage is SQL.
