It is not that important.
WHat do you think is important on that page view?
This index is only shown, if your Apache can't find any of his default files (index.html, index.php, default.html, etc).
Thats maybe the case in css folders, but do you want to index them?
The only case where this maybe makes sense for somebody is on image folders.
I don't use the index and disable it on my webhosts.
