Interesting. I would like to learn more about why you think this is a
best practice. Please don't misread, this is not a criticism. I am quite
curious about any new way of thinking that goes exactly opposite to
established ideas.

In this case, many software developers will tell you that factoring out
common lines of configuration as I have suggested prevents bugs and is
easier to read.

In my example above, if I misconfigure the perl section, I only have to
fix it in one place. If I do it the way you suggest, pasting that
configuration into 20 different location blocks, I have to fix any
configuration bug in 20 places. If I change one location slightly,
it may be hard to spot that there's a bug in that location.

Maybe I am misunderstanding your rationale? :)
