  RFC 6929 *allows* for longer attributes.  But since no one uses them,
there's no issue.  And the format is designed to be transparent to
legacy servers.  They just pass the attributes without looking at them.

  RFC 6929 also has text about how to do RADIUS properly.  i.e. issues
like the IAS nonsense with Operator-Name are now expressly forbidden.
