Having two separate mechanisms to solve the same problem is not ideal. 
In addition, creating a solution that only works in one place 
(mod_include), is less ideal still.

It should be relatively straightforward to amend the KEEP_BODY and 
KEPT_BODY filters so that, by default, the first attempt to read the 
body is passed through, and the second and subsequent attempts to read 
the body return an empty brigade.

This will give you the behaviour you are looking for, and it will work 
anywhere within the server, not just in mod_include.
