The MW provides the following example sentence, in which "pace" is used after a comma for a parenthetical purpose.

The English Oxford Living Dictionaries also provides the similar examples sentences, like Merriam-Webster; the preposition "pace" is used for a parenthetical purpose:
‘narrative history, pace some theorists, is by no means dead’
‘And none of these - pace your earlier comments - have gimps, do they?’
‘Legislation development services, pace my learned friend's submissions, clearly can include some forms of advertising.’
My Question: is this the only way to use the preposition "pace"? or there are uses of it other than using it merely for a parenthetical purpose.
