Multiple hostname support in ADFS?

There's a long winded reason why I'm asking, but it's fairly irrelevant here.

It will not work most of the time. Redirects to IdP happen from SP. CNAME might work but ADFS is unaware itself of "secondary" name. and SSL bind will be funky (strict check for HTTPS hostname binding)

Any suggestion to achieve this?
