Don't do that unless you fully trust your users. If they can modify
(parts of) the apache config without any control, they will be able to
do bad things with apache's permissions. They can easily change any
file apache has write access to by just use such a file as logfile for
their vhost, for example.
I'm not an apache expert, but I think there are a lot more possibilities
to do bad things :-) Maybe they can load self written apache modules
and then they will be able to do _anything_ apache can do.

Common cron daemons use separate crontabs for each user, you don't have
to do anything to get the desired functionality.
