This expectation (whether intentionally created or not) I would think is
exactly the reason to ensure it works, at least on a "from now on" basis.

Correct me if I'm wrong but we're just talking about a CNAME and a
ServerAlias line, right? Setting that up for 2013 onwards (or even 2011
onwards) doesn't seem like a huge task to me...

FWIW the name LCA sounds like a domain name and that's where I expected to
find info when I was someone who'd only vaguely heard of LCA.
