mod_bandwidth or mod_throttle (third party modules) may be able to do 
this.  The core apache does not do it, because it is a rather silly 
thing to do in many cases.  If the server has enough resources to 
deliver a "too busy" document, it should be using those resources to 
deliver real content.

(Although I suppose on a site with a very "heavy" pages, it may be 
worthwhile to use something like this.)
