Getting a Host: keyword as part of a request is really a protocol violation if the browser said HTTP/1.0 rather than HTTP/1.1. But all browsers do this, except Lynx, and any reasonable web server (Apache and Squid, for examples) will let you switch web roots based on the Host: keyword, regardless of HTTP versioning. It's possible that all you have to do is switch web servers and your need to burn address space will evaporate immediately.
