While the DB might not be exposed externally this is still contrary to what I believe most of us would suggest to our clients (i.e.: DB should not be the same machine as the WebServer. Due to single point of failure, etc.)
You know, that 2 machines fail double the time of a single machine :) So
unless you have some kind of switch over its just more expensive :)

But maybe it is indeed a good idea to look at the OWASP Web Setting and
publish it, along with all the best practice documentations the
different OWASP Projects recommend.
