      1) since almost all of these 408's are METHOD=GET why is the request not 
present as soon as the initial connection arrives since the request is 
coded in the URL and not in a separate header?  The total (URL + request) 
length is about 80 bytes or less.


    Headers are also sent as part of the request.


      2) what is the default value when the directive is not present and is it 
reasonable?  ie, do I have some as yet undetected problem here?


    This is documented here:


    header=20-40,MinRate=500 body=20,MinRate=500


      3) how far should I extend the body= time before I create the problem that 
the directive was designed to resolve - denial of service attacks caused by 
missing requests.

    That's tough to say - the directive exists to limit the amount of
    resources a single client can take up by being slow. It really
    depends per site as some sites may not be particularly bothered by
    slow clients or may not have many. It also varies because some sites
    serve clients across the world on very slow connections so they may
    need to tweak the values to accommodate those users.
