I'd argue that Ubuntu just has incorrect behaviour then.

If you look at man hosts on an ubuntu machine (13.10), you'll see how they
describe it, and the example they provide.  The format described is:

IP_address canonical_hostname [aliases...]

The example is:     localhost  foo.mydomain.org    foo  bar.mydomain.org    bar

That's the correct format, whether or not Ubuntu applies it.

That said, the only machine I have with ubuntu defined a hosts file with:     short-ubuntu-13.10  short-ubuntu-13

That, in a slightly unpleasant way, follows the way I'd do it.
