It absolutely matters, for the very reason you gave.

I can't comment either way on your initial request, I've always added
all hosts into one vhosts.conf file, and to be honest I don't feel like
splitting them all up into single files to test resource usage :) Though
I'm sure someone else in the know can answer this,  it is the weekend
still in half the world, so you might need to wait another day or three.

That said, as Steve mentioned, if you do decide to use one file for each
host, place your primary (first/default) vhost in httpd.conf, then after
that entry, place your include statement to load the individual files.
