I'm going to concur with this. We should stick to the default DocumentRoot. It's a
system administration task to ensure that your installed web applications are
accessible by apache. Having spells put things there is okay as well, however
switching to a /usr/share/$(SPELL)/www might make more sense from the spell
management perspective, as all the things related to that spell are in the same
location. The files meant to be accessible from the Internet are separated well
enough to make it work out of the box with minor adjustments to apache.
