You can remove any options which are setting things to their default values.

Add "cache_mem 0" to prevent the memory cache being allocated.
And remove the *_replacement_policy lines, they are pointless without

The "cachemgr_passwd none info" line is useless, since the next thing
done is disabled.
That also means the "http_access allow manager localhost" line is not
useful either unless you re-open the info report.
