I will veto any such change. Clients MUST NOT assume that the architecture
of the index service will be limited to a single host name, they must
process the explicit metadata provided by the index that indicates which
hosts the index controls.

Adding a "--trust-indices" flag to make this optional in setuptools would
be fine, but it seems perverse to trust every aspect of an index *except*
its claims to control additional hosts.
