For the Cassandra casconnectpoints option, can a hostname be used instead of an IP address?

The documentation seems to be pretty clear that the config option wants IP addresses:
Reference Guide:,-116,393

If not specified, this option defaults to the IPv4 loopback address ( "

When using a particular type of load-balancer, the same name might resolve to different IP addresses depending on location or availability.
Having to hard-code an IP address is very cumbersome.
