Again, my intuition is that the bigger architectural impact is caching at 
intermediaries. If this is a good idea at all (unconvinced), then both 
endpoints are aware of the aliasing, and as you say a browser could unify 
the caching for the two names. Proxy caches don't get https traffic in the 
clear, so I presume they can't cache it at all, right?
