I don't really understand the question, but it seems to me that it is:

- a how to question, and therefore not appropriate to a list about
   the design of the standards;

- a question about HTTP or URIs, and therefore not a W3C, but rather an
   IETF issue.

As I don't understand the question, the following may or may not be 
relevant. The hostname is part of the a URL, so changing the host will 
change the resource.  In principle, if you want the same resource 
independent of host, you need to use URNs, but I am not aware of any 
browser that implements URNs and their implementation would require an 
indexing infrastructure that would need to be paid for.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
