Sure, you can set ThreadsPerChild equal to MaxClients (and
MaxSpareThreads equal to ThreadsPerChild and MinSpareThreads equal to
0).  This is how apache on windows works.  But it does not allow any
adjustment to load, nor does it allow the server to recover very
gracefully to faults in modules.

mod_disk_cache is better tested, and probably more performant.  So I'd
just go with that unless you have a very specific reason not to.
