It is entirely possible that RADIUS client implementations that do not
include RADIUS Accounting may not have implemented the Acct-Session-Id
attribute. They would have no need to.
OTOH, I don't think we need to get too hung up about the nomenclature of the
attribute. The fact at the prefix is Acct should not be sufficient to
disqualify its usage as a session identifier for the authentication server
as well as the accounting server. A session ID is a session ID.
