To some degree, probably yes. However, I really can't say whether aspects need new structuring approaches compared to classes in OOP.
Does it mean that AOP have overcome the limitations of OOP. I am talking about any limitation that have been addressed in AOP.
At least AOP has overcome OOP's limitation of not being able to modularize certain parts an application (trying hard to avoid repeating the phrase "cross-cutting concerns" over and over again...).
Besides these native AOP patterns, AspectJ/AOP can be used to modularize OOP patterns. See http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~jan/AODPs where there is a paper and source code for all 23 GoF pattern in regular Java and AspectJ.
