That's terrible advice, or very outdated advice.

.htaccess is required, for example, for a working wordpress install. There is no reason, either,
to not allow a user to change the Indexes setting. Disallowing them access to Limit means
they can't password protect portions of their site.

You can restrict what is allowed in htaccess, yes.

No obviously about it.

I do not know that AllowOverride will give the level of control you seem to think you need
over your users, but it does provide some.
