I don't think it would make much difference for a similar 
configuration. The sections have to be merged at one time or another.
And if no <If> sections are used, the overhead of a ap_if_walk() call 
doing nothing should be small.

<If> will always be slower for subrequests than <Directory>, etc., 
because there is no way to short-circuit the merging just because the 
URL has not changed.
