I know that some frameworks (Spring) provide this mechanism, and I have
seen other projects attempt to record the information in a database and
produce application specific logic to restrict the number of requests in a
given amount of time.

I didn't know if anyone has considered a container provided filter that is
configurable to provide this kind of functionality.  "This kind of
functionality" is ambiguous I know.  But I would settle on even the basic
ability to say:  For this web service/app, allow only x many connections
per sec/min/hour.
