Oracle cloud, pluggable db and VPD

I have a few questions,

1) In the document, Oracle db cloud service security lockdown, the package DBMS_RLS is not mentioned as being supported or not being supported. Does anyone know if VPD is supported?

2) Since create user, create role and grants are not supported in the Oracle cloud, does that mean the Database User authentication method in Apex is no longer available?

3) If VPD is not supported and DB user auth is not available, in Apex, how can multiple users be supported in a single schema? Do we have to add our own security logic to every query's where clause (poor man's vpd)?
