All other ‘primary DOS partition’ that maybe allocated on that hard drive are inaccessible to the booted Microsoft/Windows operating system. This is really just a Microsoft/Windows limitation rather than being any consequence of the MBR partition table limitations itself.
This is not correct. Both DOS and Windows can see other primary partitions, and they get drive letters. At least the ones up to Windows 98, the last one I administrated.

Even primary partitions on other disks are assigned drive letters.
