You are going way overboard, I suspect.  Simply try;

NameVirtualHost *:80

# This MUST be the first host, it will be the default after all other
# hosts are evaluated and rejected.  The servername must simply be a
# name which is never used, so is appropriate.
<VirtualHost *:80>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule .* - [R=400]
