I don't see why not. But the reason for the double is even
deeper than that. You see, the balancer is defined at the
main server config rec. When each Vhost is merged, they
grab a "copy" of the main server's balancer config setup.
So you have 2 balancers, one of which isn't used at
all (the main server's) and one that is.
