Well, I don't know.  I think it once again depends on the actual
attributes and applications under consideration.  If RADIUS has a
well-defined mechanism for achieving application-level fragmentation and
re-assembly of "oversize" attributes, why isn't it sufficient for a
RADIUS-Diameter gateway function to utilize that fragmentation and
re-assembly when translating between RADIUS and Diameter?  Making the
translation simple and straightforward is important, but I think that
requirement can be met with fragmentation and re-assembly.  Execution
efficiency is another matter, of course...
