Importantly I'm talking about 4/4 dance floor stuff here.

You can limit individual channels and tons of producers do.. For example a kick drum is often better served with heavy limiting than a compressor. It's not just about loudness - limiting sounds great on lots of sources, it can be quite vibey when slamming them hard. But its not an all or nothing, you generally just limit stuff you feel benefits the track. Where I do find they work great is on Bass and Kick drums. I just use any DAWs built in ones. I don't need a mastering limiter for individual tracks/channels

One benefit of this can mean you don't need to limit so heavily during the mastering stage.
