You can use apache2ctl to pass arbitrary options to apache2. Things like

apache2ctl -S
apache2ctl -DSOMETHING -X

work without sourcing the envvars file. Probably this should be documented more clearly in README.Debian and/or the man page.

The alternatives to using envvars for the run user and pid file have different problems and are not really an improvement.
