  It's not.

  We enforce RFC requirements largely for security and formatting.  i.e. the attributes should have correctly formatted contents.

  We absolutely do not enforce the rest of the RFC requirements by default.  A good number are wrong and broken.  See RFC 5080 for a collection is disgusting breakages in RADIUS.  And that didn't catch them all. :(

  And most NASes are written lazily.  If they get two attributes where they expect one, they often don't even know.  They just look for the first one and use it.
