It already does that, sort of, if the directory for the domain is created and if
the settings.php is the default one.

So, if what you are saying is it should create domain.com directory and
settings.php, then I am with you on this.

Long term, using domain.com is far better than default, since you can
move from multi site to single site and vice versa seamlessly. If you
use default, there is a lot of work involved and hence not seamless.

Fully agree.

If the Apache user cannot create the directory, then it should tell the
user to do so.

While we are at it, why not add modules and themes as empty directories
