So, in further releases server core will remove all attributes in reject
message (except reply-message and proxy-state according to RFC 2865)?

I'm sure that there are more than one difference between RFC's and
Freeradius RADIUS protocol implementation.
Is there any serious reason to avoid returning vendor specific (and
maybe other) attributes in reject message? I think that such vendor
specific attribute as h323-return-code is very useful for explaining to
NAS why message was rejected. Reply-message attribute may serve for
diffrent needs when it is neccessary to display custom text message from
radius server.
