But that's my whole point of wanting the config setup this way...

1. set DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var 

2. the default documentroot has no index.html, so it passes over
it to index.html.var.  There is a slight performance hit here for
the default index page due to the negotiation.

3. user adds their own index.html.  The server uses it, no performance
hit at all from any negotiation stuff, regardless of if they get
rid of all the default index.html.* stuff or not.

The performance in #2 is irrelevant and has nothing to do with the
performance in #3.
