I stand corrected. What if I create virtual interfaces with faked MAC addresses, would you call that multihoming?

Nope. The original meaning is that a multihomed machine has two (or more) physical network interfaces which are connected to distinct network subnets or collision domains. Virtual interfaces don't count, nor would various forms of link aggregation like Cisco's EtherChannel or IEEE 802.3ad LACP.
