No it isn't.  Right now (well, last time I checked) you can use include
virtual to include something in a ScriptAliased directory, just not a CGI
setup with an AddHandler.  There is no reason IncludesNOEXEC should
prohibit including a document that would normally be executed as a CGI; it
should simply prohibit you from making anything else a CGI.

I think there was general agreement reached for changing the behavior so
IncludesNOEXEC worked with CGIs outside ScriptAlised directories, but I
never got around to it.
