not a vulnerability in Apache, that is poor site configuration.

Brian, a question for clarification. When you say "customized 404 response", you are not referring to a customized error document (as described briefly in the httpd.conf file) but rather to having changed the headers that the server returns when queried with a GET request, correct? And wouldn't this require changing source code and compiling a custom build of apache?
