Making NameVirtualHost a required directive is maybe not needed, but
if there are two or more VirtualHosts which resolve to the same 
address set and _no_ NameVirtualHost directive was used for that address
set Apache should at least log a warning message to the error.log, because
it is unlikely that this is intended (and it will warn people upgrading
from 1.2 to 1.3 without reading the manual or the CHANGES file).
