Ok, now I see what you're trying to do.  The problem you have
to deal with is in the default handler, because the default
handler throws the input data away during ap_discard_request_body.

Right- by the time mod_include's output filter is executed, the raw 
post data is already gone (the parse data in apreq_request is still
available though).  So you can't hand it off to the subrequest.

mod_apreq was designed to let the content handler make this decision.
The server probably needs some way for modules like mod_include to 
notify the default handler that it's ok to leave the input_filters
unread, because someone else will take care of that later on.
Unfortunately I don't have any concrete suggestions here, so 
hopefully you'll come up with something nifty.
