  Ok.  So I *won't* change the dictionaries.

  I think this sort of thing will be easier once the RADIUS "Design
Guidelines" document is published.  It will be easier to point to that,
and claim that the vendors are doing something not recommended.

  Hmm... I'll have to add some text to the document mentioning this kind
of thing (binary+ASCII data in a field), and point out that it's dumb.

  So we can thank Huawei for causing the RADIUS specifications to be
updated, so that they say the Huawei behavior is wrong. :)
