That would really upset me if I were a systems administrator.  Most of my
Apache configurations have multiple virtual hosts, and having some package
randomly add itself to the namespace of every virtual host I run, possibly
taking over pages that were currently serving some other purpose, would be
extremely annoying.

I'd want at least a debconf prompt before something added itself to the
global Apache configuration.
