 It limits the incoming URI.  You can't use URIs more than about 512 bytes
 without messing up older browsers, so there are various practical limits.
 Apache will handle up to about an 8k URI.

 I don't understand how your POST is generating a huge URI.  This is
 outside Apache's control.  POST should generate a request body, and not
 change the URI.  Or perhaps your script is generating a massive URI in the
 action="" field.  If so, then I suggest you move some of the data in that
 URI into hidden fields.
