AFAIK binary logs are only needed for replication, not with a single server.
..and for “restore operations", as per http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/binary-log.html

You might want to disable them completely.

^Exactly. Bin logs are only needed for replicated setups. You can disable binlogging by commenting out the appropriate line in my.cnf.

MySQL Binary logs are critical for point in time recovery. i.e. all the data inserted/changed since your last static backup.

The comments about only needed for replication is not the full story.
