Which raises the question, if those people, who want to install a minimal 
server will mostly use
apache or something different. And especially for minimal setups, i dont think 
that apache will be
the first choice, so i agree with the removal of those USE flags from default 
The profile is intended to have a minimal set of flags, i would call apache an 
additional optional
flag, not a default option for minimal server setups.
