If the hosting provider can still charge for IPv4 addresses, why would
they support SNI or IPv6 SSL ;)

I have seen a CDN using certificates with tons of domain names in
subject alternative name. Old Symbian phones don't support SAN......

The web server has to support it too, which means compiling
apache with SNI support and there are of course plenty of
hosts running old apache.

Well, sure, but for the hoster, it's a direct benefit, not an externality;
they have motive to fix it.
