There are only two real cases for seperate IPs for hosting today
SSL - each secure site needs its own IP address.
Anonymous FTP - to seperate the anonymous FTP space of each domain, you need a
seperate IP - also this allows you to set a custom welcome banner...
Anyway, I don't think RIPE even allocate IP space for IP-based hosting any
more unless you're specifically doing a lot of SSL hosting..
The 'reverse DNS' issue is negligible... if any of your custs are worried
about that, they should probably be paying for a more high-end dedicated
service rather than vhosting :))
