Auto throttle 95th percentile?

the problem: 95th percentile billing is cool and it is horrible. it is 
cool because it lets you burst super fast when you need it. it is 
horrible because you might consume a ton more bandwidth than you expect 
and end up paying thousands of dollars. capping the bandwidth is a bad 
idea: you are then not getting half of what your are paying for. capping 
the bandwidth higher than what you are prepared to pay is probably also 
a bad idea: it will just draw the bursts out for longer periods.

the solution: auto throttle when close to going over the 95th percentile

but... how? Anyone written a script to calculate this stuff, then
switch on the shaping to cap the bandwidth so you don't get charged
more than you can afford?
