If a am correct, this is not possible without some source code hacks,
since the logging is done in the kernel module by printk's. you can only
change the priority. you could assign a seldom used kernel priority and
redirect only that priority to an other file in syslog.conf like
kern.<iptables log priority> /var/log/iptables.log
or you can hack the module to use the syslog facility, which to me does
not seem useful, if doable...

just use a filter for the kernel log.
