It is virtual-hosted (as many sites out there), so IP address won't help.

I agree, also that would be really useful for another purpose: testing
different virtual hosts (other than the default virtual host) on a local
network/computer, that don't have a global domain name. The validator could
use the given IP and request the given hostname, and it would get the right
virtual host! That would be really neat!

Of course. But, in my opinion, that's not exactly convenient for everyday
use, and totally awkward in case of dynamic content (cgi, php).

I agree, the hostname in question is bad and must be changed, no question
about that.
