  The vendor attributes are for VSAs.  Non-protocol attributes are owned
by FreeRADIUS.

The reason I don't want to use one of the Tmp-* attributes is because they may be in use by other policies in the deployer's policies, so a specific attribute for this would suffice. 

  Send it over and we'll add it to the internal dictionaries.
