Because some hosts are providing other virtualized services which are
nowhere near being ready for use without per-IP allocations.  I'll grant
that it's not such a big issue for HTTP anymore, except of course for
bandwidth shapers, network analysis tools, load-balancing switches,
kernel-based virtualizations, etc etc etc.
