[RFE] Limit the maximum number of concurrent connections a pod can receive through a route annotation

> 3. What is the nature and description of the request?
Through a route annotation, I want to be able to set the maximum number of concurrent connections a pod exposed under a route can receive. If the pod were to be scaled, the new replicas would inherit the same limit. E.g. if limit is 100 connectoins for a single pod and it's scaled up to 4 replicas, the new limit would be 4x100.
Some use cases:
As a developer, I want that the platform controls the amount of traffic my app can receive. This can save my app from going down under extreme loads.
As a project admin, I want to protect the apps that are exposed externally through routes from DDoS like attacks.
> 4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
To limit app traffic, and avoid apps from going down under extreme loads.
To protect the apps that are exposed externally through routes from DDoS like attacks.
> 5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
By specifying a route annotation.
> 6. For each functional requirement listed, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.
Having a route annotation will effectively limit connections against a pod.
