RE: log4j defaults for AM & task
Thanks I would have never guessed ;-)
I assume it will sub anywhere on the cmdline like:
mycommand -logdir=<LOG_DIR>

Unfortunately this isnt' well documented, but if the cmd-line for your container has <LOG_DIR>, that variable will be substituted by the NodeManager with the directory where the logs will be put.

For e.g. you can pass in: myapp.py 2> <LOG_DIR>/stderr etc.

I've opened https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-772 to track documentation for this and other such features which are available.
