sounds AFAIK similar like

and as i understand the proposal if configured for the first and so
default vhost while there is no host-header matchig ServerName
or ServerAlias "403 Forbidden"

makes IMHO sense, i see a lot of mod_security hits all over our
servers with fantasy-hostnames rejected because other reasons
and a request with a non-configred hostname is most likely
some scanner searching for vulnerabilities
