Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50377] <Files*> and <Location*> sections seem to completely miss how multiple of each of them are merged

Perhaps using:
The directives from later ("sections below in the configuration") matching
sections (of the same type) override the directives from earlier ("sections
above in the configuration") matching sections (of the same type).

With the addition that directives from <Directory>s of deeper directories (e.g.
/foo/bar) always override directives from <Directory>s of higher directories
(e.g. /foo), regardless of the sections ordering within the configuration.

However, <Directory> sections of the very same directory (level) are again
processed in the order as of the configuration file, as describe above.

instead of:
Later sections override earlier ones.

Describes it more exactly?
Ok so?

But this still doesn't explain whyAnd why does e.g.:
<Location />
    Allow from ::1
<LocationMatch /server-status>
    SetHandler server-status
    Order allow,deny
doesn't lead to an allow, when accessing /server-status... and why:
<LocationMatch /server-status>
    SetHandler server-status
    Order allow,deny
<Location />
    Allow from ::1
does !!!
