Correct me if I'm wrong, but other than a prototype or two, no A300s were FBW, meaning that its not really a good example for promoting Airbus's FBW logic.
That wasn't the question though:

That was well put! I know this is an unlikely/impossible circumstance, but would an airbus allow pilots, in an emergency, to do what the Sioux City DC-10 pilots did and control the plane by manipulating the thrust if the other control systems failed?
The answer is 'yes' and the A300 was landed safely without the deaths of the two DC-10 crashes. An A380 would be perfectly flyable after losing all of its shipwide hydraulics.

In short, the A300 is not an FBW product, so I don't see how it can be used to justify the effectiveness of the limits in the Airbus FBW system!
It never was.
