Using hostnames instead of IPs is, as mentioned above, something under 
consideration in that patch.

However, note that until now, we've intentionally kept it as just IP addresses 
since using hostnames adds a lot of operational complexity and burden. I 
realize that hostnames may be preferred in some cases, but this places a very 
large strain on DNS systems. So basically, it's a question of do we add the 
feature, knowing that most people who use it will in fact be making their lives 
more difficult, or do we keep it out, knowing that we won't be serving those 
who actually require the feature.
