and if you not realize the context:

* your idea would lead at more open connections
* slowloris protection limits the connections per IP

your idea would lead in make connections from ISP gateways with
a lot of users behind coming from the same IP where most likely
some are part of a botnet fragile

that's the other side of the coin, besides the fact that this open
connectionbs are a huge problem in large enivironments, for the
sevrer itsellf as also for connection tracking on routers and
firewalls if the count would be more than uninteresting noise
