Re: "Last Look" at the RADIUS Design Guidelines document

The document states *clearly* that transporting complex attributes is
fine, so long as it is opaque to RADIUS.
If the attributes are *not* opaque to RADIUS, then all of my previous
comments about complexity apply.

I'm pretty sure I never said that.

The document *explicitly* states that transport of opaque data (i.e.
application data) is permitted.
I am already doing what you request. Please read the document.

The document and this list is about RADIUS. I have no comments on
non-RADIUS application data. It now seems that your comments are not
about RADIUS, and therefore are either already addressed in the
document, or are irrelevant to RADIUS.
i.e. If this isn't about RADIUS, then the discussion can stop now.
