The default location of the firewall log can be changed (see link below). I
agree it would have been nice to see it as an event log. This would also let
admins forward the logs to a syslog server if needed.

Subject: XP firewall logs
Does anyone have any ideas why MS decided to put the firewall log files in
the c:\windows directory as a straight text file rather than using the event
logs (ie a new firewall log)
Think the logic through. The OS directory is not supposed to be used for
temporary files (and I include logs in this). How are we supposed to secure
the OS areas if it creates logs there !??
