No.  This is one reason why tuning KeepAliveTimeout is important for a
high-load server.

There is a new mpm under development where keepalive processing is
handled by a seperate thread.  That allows the "worker" threads to go
on serving actual requests.  I'm not sure of the current development
state of that mpm.  Check the 2.1 svn tree if you are interested.
