What is if I find a better solution in 2 months? It is impossible to roll out my better solution
if the user modified those file. Or how should that work? 

Normally it is best to have everything in /etc/apache2/conf.d/myconf or /etc/apache2/sites-available/mystite.conf,
and let the package update those files. That way you can roll out changes.
