Nonsense, and shouting does not make it correct either.
Use X.509v3 SubjectAltName extensions in the certs, as I (and probably
others) said several times on this very list last month alone.
(And of course SNI is preferable, once ubiquitious support for it is
available in servers and user agents alike).
