The addresses are already under the concurrency limit as described in the
original post. The netfilter kicks in when there is certain volume
(requests per minute) EXCEEDING the concurrency limit. A human being
exceeding the concurrency limit gets a HTTP 503 service unavailable
message and will hopefully try again only after some time, when the
concurrency limit is not being exceeded. Well, that is plan, anyway.
