Could you please explain why breaking out the authorization (authz) 
components in a similar fashion to authentication (authn) is a 
gratuitous change?

I believe mod_authz_host is a much better name for mod_access.  It 
indicates that this module is only dealing with authorization based 
on the remote host components.  mod_access can mean lots of things, 
but the fact that it was solely restricted to hostnames wasn't 
obvious to me from the original module name.  -- justin
