Analytic weights, -aweights-, are used to represent the cell-means data and,

Maarten mentioned, only -fweights-, -iweights-, and -pweigths- may be used
with -logit-.  Although never documented, -aweights- were allowed with -logit-
prior to Stata's version 9.1, at which time they were removed because of their
noninterpretability.
I generally find that Stata is much much smarter than I am and that I should trust its judgment. If, however, I absolutely positively felt that aweights or some other option was legitimate, it often wouldn't be that hard just to make a copy of the program, rename it, and add support for the feature.
