We didn't go with that approach because MainResponder already allows you to do that, via a siteTree in config.mainresponder.domains (I can help you set that up if you want). We could have duplicated that feature in our responder, but it would have been a mostly wasted effort since people who need to run Manila already need to run MainResponder also.
However, you've brought up an interesting point. Did you know you can shorten your Conversant URL's considerably? You can set it up to reach your sites at any of these URL's:
Instructions and an explanation are going into the docs, but if you want a quick overview, just ask.
