When the database log is disabled, fire off a red flare
The disabling of server logs or database logs is such a warning sign of an intruder that I don't understand why all companies don't have an alerting system in place when such an event occurs. Granted an authorized administrator may be doing it legitimately, but why not check?

Good points
I would offer up you probably need to look for unusual sources using your API/Service accounts since nobody seems to reduce the priveleges on those accounts.

Furthermore I would strongly recommend monitoring changes to Store Procedure Calls especially the powerful ones like create a user or delete a user related.  That's my two cents based on the bad things I have observed over the years.
