If you currnetly use the web server's log files to account for
traffic (which I'm sure is the standard method of throughput
accounting for web-sites), you should easily be able to parse usage
based on named sites. It shouldn't be significantly more difficult
than parsing the logs for IP sites.

You will always need at least a single IP address for each server, so
this is not an issue, and will not be an issue with ARIN.
