If you have 50 FQDN's that need SSL, your looking at a $2500 - $5000 per year expense. Is that a lot to pay given the questionable trustworthiness of the major cert vendors, and the ease of generating a self signed certificate? For $5000 one can easily find hardware capable of hosting 50 domains, an additional $5k can make this redundant, so the current cost of a "browser approved" SSL cert is exorbitant in many situations.
