That makes sense.

So it should be possible to do an anti-DDos service with tons of IP 
addresses, but still forward on in encrypted form to a smaller number of 
real machines. Incapsula could have different certificates for different 
domains, but it is too much work, so they have gigantic certificates for 
a herds of unrelated domains. Right?
