Isn't there a Universal Rule that says if you meet something new in one place, you will promptly meet the same something new in three other places?
UNLESS those supplementary htaccess files also contain the line
(can go either before or after "RewriteEngine on")
they will make it as if the top htaccess file doesn't exist for the affected directories. This applies only to mod_rewrite. Other things like access control or indexing are not affected.
