Not sure there is a right or wrong way... My solution would be to put
everything in httpd.conf - check out the comments in srm.conf that used
to come with apache 1.3:

# To avoid confusion, it is recommended that you put all of your
# Apache server directives into the httpd.conf file and leave this
# one essentially empty.
