I would completely disagree.  Assuming that they are not vulnerable 
because of apache's version number is a bad assumption.

For instance, I'm running 1.3.23 patched to a particular level (not 
saying) that has eliminated all vulnerabilities currently offered.  My 
operating system maintainer provides these packages free of charge, and 
this process doesn't require me to upgrade constantly from minor version 
to minor version.  

I mirror a significant amount of Apache traffic, and I would hate to 
lose that as a result of a mis-informed choice.

the mirror is maintained or they really don't care anymore.
