Is this so?  Unless the vast majority of browser *clients* support SNI now,
removing that particular note seems premature.

In coming years, even that paragraph won't make much sense, but it sure still
seems relevant at the present time.

Does anyone have pointers to a commercial site/isp which has completely
dropped by-IP hosting for SSL in favor of SNI?  Does anyone have information
about how prevalent SNI support is for active clients?
