Could the SSH key be configured for specific hosts in 1password?

Using multiple SSH keys with 1password is still not practical.

I know about the host matching, but it's very cumbersome to configure on every machine. If I install a new server and want to store the SSH key in a company vault, every admin had to configure all that stuff with the identity files.

I'm wondering: Does the ssh-agent not get information about the host when a key is requested? Could I not then simply white list the specific host or hosts for a key inside 1password? That would solve it without having to configure identity file matching across all machines.

For now we still have to use other software like the remote desktop manager to manage all our SSH connections and keep a copy of the SSH keys there. It would be great if we could use 1password to configure at least host+key in one place one day.
