I'm surprising my detailed and patient explanation become a poor excuses! If you think there is anything wrong with my explanation, please correct me instead of blaming directly.

My typing is only poor excuses? I'm trying my best to explain the patch intention. I said in the previous email, "We are targeting to the hostname verification, and meanwhile compatible with the IP in the URI". I also agree your suggestion & requires is reasonable & meaning to support the IP check in the certificate. So, my friendly advice is to separate the issues you raised instead of mixing them up.
