I have no numbers, but my gut feeling is that there are a lot more
eyeballs than web servers with lots of IPs.

SNI; RFC 3546

The RFC is just shy of 10 years old, so that's like a baby compared to

It is mostly deployed, but there's still a fair number of old clients
that don't support it.  WinXP+IE is probably the biggest fail, followed
by Android < 3.0 and BlackBerry.
