You're doing the writing, so do what you think is clearest.  But I think 
"request processing" means "everything involved in turning an HTTP 
request into an HTTP response", which is almost everything in httpd. 
What I think you are talking about is something like hooks versus 
filters, which is really an implimentation detail that I wouldn't put in 
an end-user doc.
