I don't follow how this makes it easier to use the recommended setup?

In your example config, you defined /dav as being handled by mod_dav,  
and then you defined a FilesMatch (as I recall) that defined mod_php  
to be used by all URLs in the complete URL space that ended with  
".php". In so doing you're creating two configs that both overlap and  
contradict themselves, and this is specifically discouraged by the  
recommended setup.

I also don't like the idea that mod_dav is treated differently to  
other handlers. If you want to really solve this problem, you need to  
do so generically.
