Well....any half-serious CA should know that ANYBODY can get a 
certificate for exactly this host name provided they A) issue still 
certificates for such (internal) host names and B) also allow the use 
high-profile names and brands in the host names for others than the 
actually name/brand owners.

Unfortunately I must assume that there are CAs that still do exactly 
both of that.
