+1, I still never found a practical purpose for two wildcards.

I tend to think of having only one kind of vhost that undergoes
ip-based selection, then optionally further selection based on name,
if the best addr:port match landed on a string that matches a
configured NVH directive.

The only config I am aware of broken by this is something degenerate
with "NVH _default_:80"  and overlapping *:80 or _default_:80 where
all but the first vhost are dead code today but wouldn't be with NVH
