it's not policy incompliant if e.g. php5 would install
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/whatever containing a virtualhost definition.
the reason why nobody would do that, is, that it's just wrong and
unreasonable to do such a thing (where e.g. aliases and directory
directives are a reasonable thing to do for a web application).
or in other words; you right with your description of the resulting
situation, but the reason is not policy, but common sense.
