Right. My concern is mostly for the following situation:

- module author provides a ModuleDirective in v1
- author realizes that a block version of said directive would make a 
lot of sense
- author releases <ModuleDirective> in v2
- everyone eventually figures out, after wailing and gnashing of teeth, 
that they can't use <IfDirective> to differentiate between the two

I definitely don't think this will be common. I just don't like 
hamstringing a nice new directive with what's effectively a (rare) bug.
