Internet bandwidth responsive transcoding

I have a feature request and would like to know if that’s even possible/not too complicated:

I am streaming media for my family and some friends. I can upload 40mbit/s and without transcoding I was hitting my streaming limit pretty quick. Most of the time it’s not necessary to transcode to ~6mbit/s but because of occasional lags for everyone I was forced to limit the bandwidth globally all the time.

Would it be possible to limit the bandwidth globally only when my upload gets close to its limits?

Cheers Simon
