I assume you mean the "Managing Databases" and "Routine Database
Maintenance Tasks" chapters. I think these chapters are separate because
they address fairly different subject matter. You could call the latter
chapter "Routine Maintenance Tasks" without loss of meaning, as it
doesn't focus on maintaining individual databases per se.

Personally I don't think that's an improvement, although I'm not
completely satisfied with "Server Configuration" either.

Because that chapter describes managing individual databases and
tablespaces, not an entire PostgreSQL instance.
