One can always use an explicit HttpHost parameter, which can be a
resolved IP address, to execute a request against a specific host. The
request URI, though, is a purely virtual concept and this is what will
define the value of the Host header. An additional virtual host
parameter should have never existed. 

Besides, one can also plug in a custom DNS resolver that could use a
custom cache of resolved DNS names.
