The cache related ones are all server scoped, as the cache is server wide.

The SSL related ones are directory and/or server scoped, and it depends 
on the underlying toolkit as to whether directory scope works at all.

Don't fall into the trap of thinking all directives have to be handled 
the same way. My gut feel is that the referral processing should be 
directory scoped, there is no guarantee that the server will only ever 
connect to one type of LDAP server at a time, and the admin may want 
different processing depending on the application.
