The end goal to changing default values should always be (IMO) what  
happens when you start httpd with no config file. I don't  
realistically think that we'll get there - there's too many things  
that have to be set - but hypothetically, that should be what we're  
working towards when we make changes like this.

So, +1 to changing this, as it give us something that is safe to have  
set server-wide.
