I have EAP peer implementation (Open Diameter libeap) and I can answer
to the 1st question.

When an EAP Request/Identity is received, the peer silently discards
the message if it contains a non-UTF-8 string.
When an EAP Response/Identity is going to be sent, the peer checks the
contents of the identity passed from an application (the application
can use any UTF-8 string as identity) and silently discards the
message instead of sending it, if it contains a non-UTF-8 string.
The peer silently discards EAP Request/Identity if it contains a
These may be too restrictive (as it accepts only UTF-8 string) and I
may change my implementation to allow more flexibility.
Hope this helps,
