Multiple public interfaces and binding ssl to a subset? What does it
matter why so much as "not obviously unpossible". In the land of "not
obviously unpossible" as long as we don't have different semantics on
what's served to any given port, then an idea of "the right one" is
rather unimportant and fairly client specific, ie, "the only public
interface I have access to."
