There is code for this in INN, actually.  Up through 2.3.3, the only 
interface to the rate-limiting code is through Perl authentication 
filters.  In CURRENT, however, there is a max_rate: parameter in 
readers.conf which allows this to be set.

I still have the patches ("nnrpd-maxrate" and "nnrpd-ratelimitssl" at which are against CURRENT.  I have 
no idea if they will apply cleanly to 2.3.x, I think it's worth trying
