max-connections in incoming.conf

I'm thinking of a new key in incoming.conf; 'nohold'
which enables not to hold remote connection for
PAUSE_BEFORE_DROP(5)*60 seconds. I think this is
useful if the remote tries to connect excessively
for that period.
And I found max-connections is effective for each
IP address not for each label, while I'm trying to
implement above. I think this is misused, since
max-connections can be set to each label, not to
each hostname which may be a list of remotehosts
or may have several IP addresses. I'll try to fix
it for both STABLE and CURRENT. Any comment?
