That is roughly speaking the approach plex took, but it also requires a CA to participate, and they have rules over the domains they will do this for.

I couldn't implement this as a developer in any reasonable time frame, nor is there any existing framework I could adapt. Hopefully letsencrypt and the community can come up with something. Until then developers will just do what is expedient, which is not the best outcome.
