All right, got it.

I am not sure if it breaks it or not, but having lots of
flexibility for specifying name/address/port in the <VirtualHost>
open directive bungs up the cleanliness.

Listen 80
ServerName Foo.Com
<VirtualHost OtherFoo.Com:8080>

What happens?  Presumably the vhost will never hear anything,
but will/should we detect it and report it?

Also, from your example:

> ServerName       [assumes the default port 80]

except that Ryan said there is no default port any more.
