Seems like a good idea. Suggestion: Format the string so you can rely on Burn variables like [CommonAppDataFolder].

Subject: [wix-devs] Adding Logging Base Folder to bundles

We have a requirement to consolidate the logs created by the burn bundle in a different folder other than %TEMP%.
We were wondering if this is something you guys might be interested to include it on a future release (maybe 3.11.x)

It will look something like this:

<Wix ...
    <Bundle ....
        <Log LoggingBaseFolder="C:\ProgramData\Acme" Prefix="InstallLogs\AwesomeInstaller" />
        <!-- ... -->

More details on the change:
