I believe that the ACI section you mention does permit the loads closer than "d" to the support to be ignored (or in otherwords Vu shall be as that computed at a distance "d" from the face of support).  There are exceptions that are discussed in the commentary.

Does anyone know why for Concrete design per ACI 318-95 you are
not allowed to ignore concentrated loads within a distance "d" from the
support for shear yet for Wood design, you can ignore all loads within a
distance "d" from the support per NDS '97 3.4.3a (Figure 3D). Shouldn't
proceedures for wood and concrete be the same? Is NDS ignoring some effect
that they should not be?
