I figured I must have misunderstood because I don't see why one would
want to share a single per-host key between different algorithms

Let's say SSH puts its public key for host X into /etc/big-file-o-keys.  
Now if ipsec were to use that same host key for DES it would be using
what for all purposes was a disclosed key.  Not good.
