The concept is inheritance. Picture all the #include'ed .conf files
flattened at the global scope, unless you actually do an include within a
specific <scope>.

Basically, what you set outside of all the specific <virtualhost > blocks
applies globally to all hosts, unless you override them. There are quirky
cases like rewrite and some of ssl which don't auto-inherit the globals,
but for the most part, what gets set outside of <blocks > apply to all
situations that aren't explicitly overridden.
