If we only deal with Port 80 we don't need an explicit Listen directive

Ah, I forgot about localhost... but I think most servers are rarely access
as localhost. ,-)

You mean adding a _default_ vhost to very example? Well, I intentionally
added a paragraph about _default_ vhosts with example sections that can 
be used in one of the other examples if they are need... and only when
they are need. If have a server with one IP and use it for name-based
vhosts (and also specify "NameVirtualHost :-)) then a _default_
vhost (or the main server) never serves a request.

Ask Dean ;-)
My tests showed that it work without NameVirtualHost...

Yep, that's true.
