Throttling uploads (incoming) traffic to nginx...

I asked a similar question but no one answered and we keep failing when
trying too, so I'm trying to ask again.

Our organization is testing nginx,

We noticed that the limit_rate directive works for data sent out from the
server very well (downloads),

But absolutely no limit seems to be set for the data sent into the server

Is there any way to allow a limit_rate for uploads too? And if not, would
this be considered a bug to be fixed?

We handle large uploads, and Upload Module seems perfect, but the uploads go
at 100% full speed which we want too slow down due to server load/file
system load.
