This should be added to the FAQ.  =)

Actually, I don't remember the exact reason, I think it's because Apache
needs to find out where its other included config files are first before
parsing them all, or something.... 

Then it was decided this was a good thing anyways, since if the server
doesn't survive an instant reload, it won't survive being restarted
anyways (for purposes of log rotation or whatever).
