Sure, but in truth, apache configuration is really complex and "deny 
from all" doesn't always really mean what it says.

This configuration:
<Location />
Allow from all
<Directory /usr/local/apache2/htdocs>
Order Allow,Deny
Deny from all

allows unlimited access -- which would surprise many users.

All that to say, I'm fine with the "document that mod_cache ignores 
mod_access" solution to this problem.
