If you don't want to put the alias in the proper context (your own SSL
VirtualHost), you can configure it globally and redirect to SSL in a
<Directory> container:

Split config files allow the packager to maintain a subset of your
config files, and allow other packages to drop config files into place
without editing existing files, but there's little cause for adding
directives out of context to keep them tidy in some filesystem layout
that Apache doesn't care about.
