That's not the case for OpenSSH; it's supported socks5 since 2003 (v3.7 and up) and socks4a since January last year (v5.2 and up). Both of those support resolving names on the server side if the socks client asks for it (eg in Firefox, about:config -> network.proxy.socks_remote_dns=true).

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
