I'd call it DefaultMapping or so to avoid confusion with SetHandler.
Usually, the therm "handler" is known to be somewhat file
resource-independent unless you're using the Action directive and
associate a specific cgi-script to a handler.

DefaultMapping /index.php
AddHandler php_handler .php

is more intuitive IMHO since the directive maps the request /foo to
/index.php if no corresponding resource was found in the filesystem
and no content handler was associated (e.g. via SetHandler).
