Well, I'm sure you can find a way to reuse those. e.g. you could copy the 
autogenerated .conf files and use them in your production.

Not at all, it's just the convention taken by those who added ssl setup to 
httpd-test and I seem to like this separation. It's good since you have your 
ssl keys/certs/etc. you don't have to follow that convention.

BTW, A-T has a special module that helps to deal with SSL certs setup 
(Apache::TestSSLCA). I haven't written it so I won't be much of help, but if 
you look at httpd-test/perl-framework setup you will see how it's used to 
automatically generated certificates and ssl setup. If you can write a doc 
addition about this module and SSL setup in general it'll help a lot too.
But again if what you have works for you, you don't have to use it.
