While that's true, a RadSec to RADIUS gateway involves terminating
TCP, TLS, and forwarding the contents to RADIUS. If this isn't RADIUS,
then by the same standards, any HTTPS to HTTP proxy isn't doing HTTP.
Similarly, any IPv4 to IPv6 gateway is evil, because it involves
changing the transport layers underneath the application-layer protocol.
And finally, SIP allows for both UDP and TCP transports, each with the
option (or not) of using TLS. There would seem to be obvious parallels
between SIP and RADIUS here.
