That's what I think, too. The relevant concept here seems to be the
one of scope. See:

Configuration Sections - Apache HTTP Server

| Directives in the configuration files may apply to the entire server,
| or they may be restricted to apply only to particular directories,
| files, hosts, or URLs. This document describes how to use
| configuration section containers or .htaccess files to change the
| *scope* of other configuration directives.

The document then lists directives that do change the scope, and <Limit>
is not among them.
