        (1) if implement, don't forget to update default agent config files and documentation, see ZBX-7034

        It was decided to not support aliases in HostnameItem, to this issue was reduced to simple conf file update describing the limitations.

        It was decided not to support aliases in HostnameItem, because there are only few customers who generally use aliases, but those who use aliases in HostnameItem are even fewer. It is strongly believed that the current functionality is adequate.
