No, it's actually quite good, as you'll most likely benefit from
even more shared memory usages is the 2 different servers load some
of the same DSO modules (mod_mime for instance)

It's perfectly fine to do so. As a warning, though, there are known issues
with mod_perl DSO and FreeBSD's default Perl configuration with usemymalloc
you might want to read about [1].

But all in all, you should be just fine.
