Independent of quotas, this is a bad idea.  As the security warning in
the logging docs tells you, anyone who can write to any of the
/home/vhost_name directories can likely gain root on your computer.

Your solution of logging to one (root controlled) location and
post-processing to split the logs is certainly better.
