Bandwidth controller on APM PPP interface

We would like to limit the bandwidth utilization for a specific traffic stream from APM Big IP Edge client VPN users connected to the F5 Big IP APM. This traffic is tunneled on the PPP interface and I am wondering if we can someway apply a bandwidth Controller policy to a PPP tunnel (perhaps via Irule) and restrict traffic to a specific IP address (f.e. But I guess this is going to be a difficult one and question if this is feasible.

I was thinking perhaps to create an IP forwarding VS with IP address that "listens" on internal PPP interfaces only and apply the bandwidth controller there. Would the APM tunneled traffic still be matched and handled by this VS?

Any other ideas?
