If they need to be able to connect to it from another location it would give a problem (only
1 "public" IP/server, unless we work with SSL certificates) is allowed by RIPE for as far
as I know. With IPv6 this is of course not a problem.

If you need to support browsers, that should help too.

RIPE are ok with 1 IP per SSL vhost ; they tend to encourage/mandate
name-based hosting (as you suggested) for http to eke a few more
years out of the ipv4 address space.
