I don't see this as a big problem. Right now you also have to halt the
entire system to move them. And there are other configuration file
options which also cannot be changed after the system has started.

I don't see a big need for being able to move the log files around
when the system is running. If there is such a need, let's make it
a separate feature from being able to specify the location in the
logfile, and implement it separately so we don't slow down the
original feature we're all looking for.
