Well, in 2.2 the <VirtualHost> docs say:
> "The string _default_, which is used only with IP virtual hosting to catch unmatched
IP addresses."

So this seems a difference to me, but I have never actively used it so I cannot
vouch for it.

But yes, I think the references to _default_ can be removed from the
documentation. I tried all kinds of combinations and it doesn't seem to have
any special meaning, and a look through the source code also only reveals that
it is an alias of "*" (line 190 of vhost.c)
