Thanks for your answer, but I'm afraid it won't resolve my problem.
Regarding to [1] <DirectoryMatch> (similar to <Directory ~>) has higher
priority than "normal" <Directory> and I won't be able to override it
for only one directory, e.g.:
<Directory /home/foo/user1/public_html>
to give it some other Options.

[1] -

Those user's home directories are the caused by having a few group of
users/accounts in the system (students, staff, a few others groups).
They have been there for years and I don't see a chance to change it in
the nearest future (especially I'm not the admin of that system).
