Everyone who is on XP and using IE (any version!) lives without SNI. As far as I know (it's been a while since I've used it, so possibly, this has been fixed) IIS also fails to support SNI.

A solution which is unavailable on ~25% of all webservers, and which fail to work for ~10% of all users, is not currently viable.

It seems likely this problem will go away in the future. But at the moment, it's a real problem. 5 years from now, I expect SNI will be pretty universally supported. It'll allow shared-ip-webhosts to offer https afterall, and that's a pretty major progress.
