It’s no more a waste to write these than it’s a waste for servers to use disk space writing out logs.

Server logs are not manually written by humans. Obviously no one is worried about the disk space. I’m ok with wasting cpu cycles writing something that might never be read but wasting humans time is just rude. [I don’t thrive in bureaucratic environments so my perspective may be skewed]
