Which can't be if no vhost is defined for that SNI, the option would
not break that (it's more a hardening feature).
I'm not arguing we should relax the check (now), but when/if
everything can be done/renegociated at hook_Access time, hook_ReadReq
will have to let it go, still the check at SSL (alert) level is
relevant IMHO.
