Not really. For one thing, as long as you actually do use seperate IP
addresses, there's no problem, since the Host: header should have
nothing to do with that. It's only virtual hosts that don't have a
matching IP address (the ones that use the main interface) and rely on
the Host: header that need a name. And at any rate, you could still
use an IP address in the <VirtualHost> if you wanted to; the code
actually bases it on the ServerName value and on anything given in a
ServerAlias directive.
