I don't think it's confusing. I think using the same directive for them

Now wait a minute... this isn't printf. In my email I said "%" and I mean

Yes, but there is a question of idiot-proofing, and just in general 
making things simple for the end user. It's a very little extra bit of 
code to use, and many people *will* type in

UserDir /usr/local/www

and expect it to work as I've outlined.
