Flood Control and Auto Ban

Didnt see these anywhere in search as well.

Flood Control:

To prevent users from spamming resources and killing the CPU. Surprised this is not already implemented.

Auto Ban:

If spammer is hitting the site @ a ridiculous pace that IP should automatically get banned. Sure GoogleBot and other Crawlers would be a problem, but if i would like to limit registration page or how fast things get added to cart it would be helpful

Both should be managed at server level…

Why have a manual IP,Email, etc… ban capabilities then?
