Yup - there are a load of people saying it's redundant and doesn't look
pretty.

There are also a load of sysadmins and people who maintain large sites
saying it is important for technical reasons.

e.g. 

 * Ability to use CNAMES for CDNs and/or third party hosting (e.g. app
engine)

 * Sharing Cookies (if you want to)

 * Not sending Cookies and bloating requests (if you don't want to)
