Using HTTP POST for denial of service

you don't generally put a CDN in front of your 'dynamic' web server domain (because for dynamic content it can't usually help with caching, and just adds another layer of indirection and delay)
layer 7 load balancing proxies will almost certainly 'fix' slowloris AND this 'slowpost' attack - that's what nginx or any of the other servers I listed are doing - DNS round robin etc (poor man's balancing) obviously won't help.
