I like the idea,  a short flat bar across the bottom might be enough to stop and kick outs if it becomes an issue.  I thought about this on the leveling jacks, just never pursued it to that point.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

One could make a variety of interchangeable bases to fit whatever situation.  Also, what about building one with a double hook?

Another use is....
Find a chunk of pipe that will slide down over the jack.
Weld it fast to the part that moves up.
Drill a 5/8 hold through the top part of the pipe.
Find another chunk of pipe that slides over the pipe that you just welded om the jack.
Drill a 5/8" hole about every 6" up the pipe. Put a long bolt into the hole to tie the two pipes together.
The will make you and adjustable pusher from around 4 feet to 8-10 feel long.
Great for working on roofs to jack them up for new post.

I've been using High Lift / Ranch Right type jacks that way, with a piece of pipe, for years.  Great for racking building frames straight.

Kbeitz...Great idea...that's roughly how I turn all my bigguns. As someone else mentioned, I use a logrite hook dug in to the top, far side of the log/cant, attached to a chain running underneath to a clevis hook which is attached to an older, heavy duty Hi-Lift jack. The I beam of the jack slides and locks into a receiver attached to the inside of the track rail. it easily turns anything I can fit on the mill and a few logs that can't.  ;)
I'm with MM on the safety thing. you need to engineer a safer way to secure the jack when turning. Nice round logs are one thing, but get a big, knarly chunk of wood on your mill and things can go south on you pretty quick.
