A basic understanding or reading of the mod_md page will tell you it
is to manage generation of certificates automatically. Certificates
are associated with CN Names and those with virtualhost names. I have
a hard time trying to understand what is difficult to understand about
what mod_md is.

Perhaps changing the main description a bit will make it more
understable? "Managing domains certificates across virtual hosts,
certificate provisioning via the ACME protocol" ?

I've used mod_md a bit and what you describe looks on first sight
quite convoluted.

mod_md has a specific purpose to generate certificates for
specific/managed domains, but why mix directives with mod_ssl?

Perhaps a more schematic view will clear things up

mod_md: generates certfiicates for domains
mod_ssl: Load certificates for domains. If mod_md is present and
manages a domain, mod_ssl is supposed to use mod_md ones instead of
those manually given through file paths.
