No... they are confused [search bugs, and the lists, and the newsgroups.]

A vhost (or the default server) has one and only one identity [servername] 
but potentially many aliases [serveralias].  A vhost has one and only one
port identity as well [was Port], which has simply been combined with it's
one and only one identity.

Not really confusing, when you remember that ServerName/ServerAlias are only
identities, and Listen is the actual port configuration.
