So you're unable to  set things like client authentication, CRL
checking, or restrictive ciphers at a per-vhost level?  It's unclear
to me  whether the specific vhosts are HTTP or HTTPS, but either way
it's not the browser talking to them, right?

Don't you get this same "solution" with 1 RewriteRule (proxied, not
redirected) and a certificate crafted the way you describe?

How do you add a new host?  How do you revoke a certificate or know
where to do CRL checking for an organization if it's all common?
