When you upload the logs to the site, you get this neat "split by encounter" feature where you can look into individual boss fights. However, when you do local logging (and hosting on your own web space) you just get one big generic log, without the nice ability to split the log up by encounter. Is there going to be a way to get this "split by encounter" feature for self hosted logs? I was just curious because the WWS site tends to be pretty sluggish at some point, and having the split log feature for local logging would let people host their own logs, and relieve some stress on the WWS site.
I was also wondering if the new combat log would allow the tracking of priest's PoM ability properly. By "properly" I mean attributing each PoM's heal to the correct priest. (Since each mob has it's own ID now, I figured maybe each PoM would have it's own as well. This seemed a good place to ask and find out.)

All that splitting is done on the server, you'd have to have a copy of the server code and the Java Servlet environment to run it in to host reports yourself. Lossendil has talked about supplying the front end code that you could integrate into your website that would pull the processed data down from the WWS servers and display on your website. Unfortunately this would still be subject to any server performance issues.
Lossendil is stopping development on the v1 client that generates reports you can self-host. However, he is willing to share the code if someone is interested in stepping up to manage development on the project.
Given that you're asking for suggestions, may I suggest two things for the current end-game:
1) Fix Reliquary of Souls so it actually shows up as a single boss, instead of P1, blank space, and P3. No idea why your parses shows it this way, but it does, and always (afaik) has. One single boss, determined from moment of pull in P1 right through to P3. If you want to make it precise, have it select P1->spawn of mana regen adds, P2->spawn, P3->death since P1 and P2 don't actually 'die', but just hit 1% and transition.
2) You know the Illidari Council? They're a council. Stop labelling them as individual bosses as the name of the fight.
and then one suggestion overall:
3) Your site is awesome. Buy some more bandwidth, and put more ads on it or something. Because it's been getting progressively slower as time goes on. This is probably due to increasing user presence; hence, ads should increase revenue accordingly, to pay for bandwidth, making users happy, which is an increasing cycle of goodness. Basically, don't make your Unlimited Account customers have to wait for 2 minutes to display a parse. They're paying for performance.

I've got a suggestion, not sure if it's entirely feasable though. At the moment, and also in 2.4, the final Lifebloom tick, Prayer of Mending and Earth Shield are counted as healing done by the player receiving the heal, not by the player who casted the heal. Maybe it's possible to add an option like "all PoM/LB/ES healing should be counted for this person", as sometimes there is only one holy priest/resto druid/resto shaman in the raid. I even got an idea to make it more sophisticated (and more complex) for when there are multiple healers of such classes in the raid, but I wonder if this would be possible first. Would really like to see some "true" healing meters, as I have no clue how much healing my final blooms do at any given raid, let alone how powerful ES/PoM is.
