That is different protocol on the same port. I am fine with supporting it.
It's just a matter of merging rtsp-host with http-host as a unique
configuration item. I think both cases are rarely used corner cases, so I
don't have any strong opinion on which one to support.

As for different ports for the same protocol IN THE SAME PROCESS, I still
don't see the point.
