I'm not sure this change would be very well received by the community. Sometimes, for various reasions, people only want to log actions. Recently, this was done on enwiki in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseFilter/905 for T32750/T188960.

Personally, I don't agree with this. It may happen, as pointed out by Nirmos, that you want a log only filter, especially if you want to test if it works well.

You are absolutely correct. I had completely ignored the "silent alert" mode, which I myself have used in the past too.
