IMO it is an enhancement to make it any smarter, taking into consideration the
doc vs. the behavior

AllowOverride options= doesn't control the effective values, it controls which
literal options can appear in the Options directive.  

For this same reason, you also can't enforce SymlinksIfOwnerMatch by not
allowing an override of "SymlinksIfOwnerMatch", because once you delegate any
other single option the user can just omit SymlinksIfOwnerMatch and use the
non-relative syntax.

SymlinksIfOwnerMatch tends to pop up as a problematic case because it's one of
the few options you "turn on" to limit something, but this configuration option
does not let you enforce what "stays on".
