I think the scenario is that you're pretty sure you do actually want
to nuke data message and hence in all likelihood a queue purge would
be sufficient.

The logging bit was just a get out of jail card should you find out
after having done the purge that you did actually need those messages
after all (hence the drain via basic.get/disk log option).

Of course, having some way to DLQ all messages from a particular queue
on demand would solve the use case as well, because this would have
the same effect as purging the queue but still keeping the data around
lest you find out you were wrong in the first place.
