Wow, it's quite an extreme position to say an SSL is not a valid reason 
for an IP address!
Deploying SNI is a customer support nightmare, it's broken (sometimes 
randomly) on many platforms that claim to support it and non-existent 
for anyone using IE on XP (and there are a lot of them!)

If SNI actually worked as advertised we could survive on the IP 
addresses we have until IPv6 is widely deployed. Sadly there will come a 
time soon where we will either have to start
turning customers away or plunging into the expensive crevasse that is 
the IP trading market!
