Contrary to what you suggest this has already been requested by several
parties. There is of course never a need for that, since discussions you
don't want to have logged are simply taken offline where neither channel
participants nor log readers have access to them.

Many would regard this as serious breach of protocol, unless the people
whose conversations have been logged in the logger bot's absence approve
of that explicitly for the occasion for various reasons; unreasonable as
that may seem.
