I'm not sure what you mean by DoS;
If there's a typo in a rule definition, that rule is disabled and a warning is
issued where possible. All other valid rules still work.
After making changes to the configuration file, you have a way to verify they
are correct.

It might be possible to always run 'rsyslog -N -f <cfg>' from the init script
before starting rsyslog, but I'm not sure if this is the right solution. Are
you ok with this?
