It is *Remote*HostValve so it acts on the host name of the client, not
the http host header.

You want wildcard matching in a host alias and that isn't supported at

there are performance concerns.

If the performance concerns can be overcome, it is a possible feature
addition for Tomcat 7. Fancy writing a patch?
