For what it's worth, I find the reporter's proposed change completely logical,
although I realize that the backward-compatibility hassles may outweigh the
benefits.  For good reasons, any nonempty AllowOverride setting raises error
500 if an htaccess file contains a disallowed directive; having "AllowOverride
None" behave differently seems like a gratuitous special case.

It would make more sense to have a separate directive to skip htaccess
processing for server admins who want the performance benefits.  In fact,
AccessFileName with an empty list would logically do just this; we would just
need a syntax for it, such as "AccessFileName none".
