What am I missing here? Why is it misleading to say the directive has no
effect on Windows? It does have no effect. There is no need for the
qualifying "when using with the Apache Web server" because the documents
are for Apache so why would anyone think it has an effect on any other

Or if it is needed, make sure that all the other statements about what
works with NT vs.  Unix also have the qualification "when used with
Apache", for example, StartServers, ThreadsPerChild, MinSpareServers.
