RE: RADEXT Issue 148 Item 6
The counter objects are for malformed packets. So a definition is
necessary, even if the definition is just saying something like 'a
malformed packet is any packet that is not well-formed, according to
Interoperability means that the document is clear enough so that two
different implementers can create two distinct implementations that
result in the same counter values for any given mix of well-formed and
malformed packets. Different implementations following the text in the
documents MUST NOT result in different counter values.
