Interested to support this in Apache httpd.

The handling of 421 responses is not the same for all clients. This has caused some problems in deployment where not all sites listed in a cert enjoy the same TLS configuration. With renegotiation not possible, a server can only 421 such a request.

My hope for an ORIGIN frame is that the server can indicate which hosts *really* are mixable on the connection and clients can refrain from second guessing from alternate names only.
