--- Comment #1 from Mark Thomas <markt@apache.org> ---
Quoting [1]
"Note that all networked servers are subject to denial of service attacks, and
we cannot promise magic workarounds to generic problems (such as a client
streaming lots of data to your server, or re-requesting the same URL
repeatedly). In general our philosophy is to avoid any attacks which can cause
the server to consume resources in a non-linear relationship to the size of
inputs."

Also, this was discussed on the users mailing list [2] many years ago.
