This doesn't seem to be a problem that Apache can fix.
Services generally expect a client to either make a fairly
regular set of requests over time (justifying a keepalive)
or to make big requests every once in a while (no keepalive).

I suggest a workaround: if you can't speed up the client so
that it doesn't delay for so long while constructing the request,
then send an OPTIONS request in a regular interval before
the huge POST so that the connection is primed and alive.

Alternatively, just use a long keepalive timeout since it
will only apply to SSL sessions that have already
successfully negotiated, and thus should not be as much
of a denial of service issue as it would for a normal
public-facing website.
