Issue with draft-ietf-radext-fixes-01.txt section 2.3.2
Description of issue
Submitter name: Avi Lior

Comment type: T
Section: 2.3.2. Acct-Session-Id and Acct-Multi-Session-Id
Rationale/Explanation of issue:
Section 2.3.2 is attempting to fix a problem with Acct-Session-Id which
is not really a problem.
Infact, the proposed change will break existing RADIUS server
implemenations, Accounting Correlation and Mediation systems and other
The text from issues and fixes is as follows:
2.3.2. Acct-Session-Id and Acct-Multi-Session-Id
[RFC2866] Section 5.5 describes Acct-Session-Id as Text within the
description, but also states that "The String field SHOULD be a
string of UTF-8 encoded 10646 characters."
Effectively there is no inconsistency since both definitions lead to the
same result. Acct-Session-Id will be implmented as "UTF-8 encoded 10646
characters". No developer will implment Acct-Session-Id as a String.
Delete this section.
Alternatively, you can reinforce that Acct-Session-Id is of type TEXT.
