I don't think this is a bad idea.

I have a similar, but opposite :-) need. I need to produce a custom logfile
instead of the monit's default one. This is needed to integrate Monit with
other proprietary monitoring tools (specifically in my case, HP OpenView)
which are already in place in the server farm.

It would be fine to be able to customize the logfile in a way similar to the
Apache's one.
