Well, that is not entirely true at least if the mentioned patch is applied. 
For example AllowOverride cannot be used in a .htaccess. But with the patch 
you can say:

  $r->add_config( ['<Directory />',
                   'AllowOverride AuthConfig Options=Indexes,ExecCGI',
                  ], ~0, '' );

If done in a MapToStorage handler that returns DECLINED it even affects the 
subsequent processing of a .htaccess file.

Or to do something like .htaccess processing:

use Apache2::Access;
use Apache2::RequestUtil;

  local @ARGV=($htaccess_file_name);
  $r->add_config( [<>], $r->allow_override, '/', $r->allow_override_opts );
