AFAIK, it's not at all rare. Especially for mail. At some enterprises, there are pushes to consolidate all TLS handling in a load balancer and maintain the certs there, regardless of the protocol.

Leaving that aside, am I correct that it would be a deal breaker? We can disagree whether it's a problem (or leave that as a community specific question), but it's useful for me in evaluating the potential of the suggestion.
