Default I have a dumb question about ispconfig.vhost

The ISPC panel is accessed by using port 8080 and you can add a SSL cert for this to make it secure. So therefore it's supposed to work by going to (for example) https://server1.example.com:8080/

This is well and good but the ispconfig.vhost file for apache lists:
Listen 8080
NameVirtualHost *:8080
<VirtualHost _default_:8080>
..etc..etc..

What this means is if one adds a few clients and sites and lets say a clients site is www.somedomain.com then they can access the ISPC panel via https://www.somedomain.com:8080/ BUT because the SSL cert doesn't match it will throw up a warning.

Now I know you are going to say - tell your clients to login at https://server1.example.com:8080/ not by using their own domain...

My dumb question is:- Why is it this way? Wouldn't it be correct to specify the host or IP in ispconfig.vhost rather then having it at *:8080?
