I use SSL/TLS for privacy on my site, not for authentication per se,
which is why I can use one certificate for all hosts. I use it
primarily to access my webmail, so I use secure HTTP to tunnel my
mail, login, etc.

Yeh, DNI will be useful when server's get around to implementing it.
All modern browsers already support it, I think, though I have to
wonder how they tested it since I haven't heard of /any/ servers that
support it.
