htaccess restrictions

From the new cgi FAQ
21. Why doesn't my .htaccess always work?
An overall increase in security on the new CGI platform means .htaccess directives are not applied to:

.php files

.php3 files

Files inside your cgi-bin directory

Our CGI discussion forum will help you find out other ways of implementing security for your applications.

Can someone please provide a little more detail here. The most common directives in .htaccess are typically used for controlling directories rather than files. So can you please confirm that these will not be affected. For example, using ErrorDocument to provide custtom 404 pages or use of Basic authentication for password protecting folders.
