Snipping the other example use cases for the sake of brevity.
Great. Specific use cases are far more helpful than generalized
I can see that your examples may be of utility in certain deployments.
Given that some of these examples entail semantics (i.e. required
actions) at the NAS beyond the requirement to include the CUI in future
*-Request messages, it would be helpful if these requirements were
documented, somewhere. The CUI draft may be an obvious place, but it
could be some other document. In the interests of global
interoperability, it would be helpful if anyone reading the RFC(s) on
CUI could understand all the standardized uses, and implement NAS
firmware that interoperates in a multi-vendor deployment.
All that I'm asking for, I guess, is full documentation of the intended
uses of the new attribute. Undocumented uses lead to poor
interoperability. Of course, undocumented uses may also lead to
product-specific competitive differentiators. We need to carefully
weigh the interests of multi-vendor interoperability in writing
Standards Track RFCs.
