Did you read all the docs on <Limit>?  It says that using <Limit> is
almost always unnecessary; and it is true!  Don't use <Limit> unless you
have a specific need to limit access to some methods while allowing access
to other methods.  And in general, even this should be done with
<LimitExcept> instead.
