IMO, we can trust that Googlebot has good behavior in crawling the World Wide Web. In rare occasion it may run wild but I would not bother in asking Google to slow the bots down as it is more prudent to have it fixing itself in natural way. In all cases, overloading is only temporarily in a very short term and things then return normal. No hassle.
