Indeed, but I don't think that's what the OP is looking for in an
apache proxy.  Rather the proxy reply with a "too busy" error page
than not take the connection at all, right?

The proxy balancer would be a place to look: that offers various
ways to determine how much traffic to send to a backend.  If that
doesn't meet your needs, there are several third-party traffic-
limiting modules.
