The term is meaningless in the context of this charter & should be
removed or at the very least _highly_ qualified. Saying (as the
currently proposed charter does) that "All RADIUS work MUST be backward
compatible with existing RADIUS RFCs" is just absurd. That said, the
following paragraph would work, Think:
- All documents produced MUST specify means of interoperation with
legacy RADIUS implementations and, if possible, be backward
compatible with existing RADIUS RFCs, including RFCs 2865-2869,
3162, 3575, 3579, 3580, 4668-4673,4675, 5080, 5090 and 5176.
