Is the policy still that dedicated IP addresses for web
hosts *should* only be used when technical justification
exists?  I really wish it would change to a requirement
as we very frequently get new hosting customers who get
angry when they find their site that doesn't have SSL
or any other technical reason for a dedicated IP ends up
on a shared IP when their old host didn't do that or
would sell them a dedicated IP for $5/month, etc.
