SNI doesn't work well enough yet to rely on it. E.g. for Browse we need
force TLSv1 (i.e. disable SSLv3) or it won't use SNI (Iceweasel, which
in theory is based on the same backend code, handles this fine). But if
we disable SSLv3, some browsers (e.g. Epiphany [1]) stop working at all.
And some browsers (Epiphany again [2]) still don't support SNI.

SSL/TLS is still a large nest of bugs and incompatibilities. :(
