that documentation (also in the 2.2 one) in the way that they have written 
it as an exclusive truth is simply not true. One just needs to know the 
caveats. It's for instance perfect for an organization to offer several 
SSL vhosts under one IP and with one wildcard certificate. It doesn't work 
for webhosting different clients, of course.
