This is quite possible.

My personal (individual WG member) opinion is that the RADSEC work is
interesting for proxy-to-proxy and proxy-to-home-server usages. I think
that it would be fairly rare to see it in NAS-to-server or NAS-to-proxy
cases. That takes most of the "sting" out of the "wedded-to-UDP" issues
with NAS-based client implementations. I think of proxies as being a server
and client glued together, BTW.
