I don't think there is an entry for this.

Let's do this now! It can't be that hard, because host lists definitely exist
and are being matched against already. The semantics described in sections 10.9
through 10.17 should work, at least when the item being checked is an IP
address. When the item is a domain name, matching against wildcard domain
patterns or lookups by name can be done directly, while matching against IP
addresses/networks and plain domain names should only require resolving both
hostnames (if they are not identical) and checking whether they have any IP
address in common.

What have I missed? Even if it's not entirely clear how to specify cleanly how
this test should work, it should be possible to decide on a sufficiently
meaningful specification.
