Ok, here's the probmem...
You customize the icons for your own application...
You remove the htdocs/manual directory, as you don't wish to become an
Apache documentation mirror.
You upgrade....suddenly, your customizations are undone. That is
considered VERY bad.
/etc is not part of the automatic upgrade process. I suspect that's the
reason those files are in /etc.
Think "life cycle", not just "install". While the current location may
not be intuitive, I think it *is* correct.
