lazy sessions and .htaccess

I am using lazy sessions for my site, and as such have a section like this:

<Location />
  AuthType shibboleth
  ShibRequireSession Off
  Require shibboleth

This works as expected, but I would like to further configure a
subdirectory with a .htaccess file (which, as the documentation states,
impossible in combination with the above <Location> block.

My workaround was to place the directives in a <Directory> block,
configuring the webroot.

This *does* work, but I'm wondering if it is the best way to accomplish
what I want (to use .htaccess files).

I have httpd 2.4.6 and shibd 2.6.1

Any pointers here would be appreciated!
