The focus is on extensions that are already deployed or providing
support for extensions that are already deployed.  For example, there is
work that SIPPING WG would like to do in order to standardize SIP use of
RADIUS accounting, and they have requested work on RADIUS prepaid and
RADIUS transport profiles to support that.  It has been claimed that
RADIUS prepaid work would benefit from an extension of the attribute
space.  And there are WLAN extensions that have already been defined in
WFA, IEEE 802, vendor-specific attributes, etc.

So my question is:

What do packet type codes 33 and 34 do?  Are these extensions used today?
Are they useful for newer applications as well as legacy ones?

If this represents something that is already deployed, then it might be
appropriate.  Can you describe the issues that came up in the PacketCable
1.0 spec?
