Not really a freeradius issue, but you could maybe enable the various
certificate store export options before doing the purchase, then export
it. You'd need to (re)name the box you purchased from appropriately, but
only for the duration of the purchase.
Though I can understand you wanting a pre-trusted cert, we didn't find
it particularly onerous to distribute a self-signed one.
I am surprised no-one else is offering that EKU oid. Have you tried
speaking to someone technically knowledgeable at one of the other CAs -
it may be something they can do as a specific request, even if it's not
a default option.
