Reply-Message in various clients & EAP vs CHAP.

Does anyone have a draft list of which clients actually support the 
Reply-Message and by which methods they can recieve them?

The reason why I ask , it during initial tests (using chap) the built in 
windows CHAP supplicant would display the reply-messages being sent back 
from the server.
Now we've moved on from CHAP to using EAP and the windows supplicant no 
longer displays the messages.

Am I right in assuming that with EAP attributes from the access-accept 
packet only get to the NAS and that the NAS will strip out of the EAP 
and pass it on to the supplicant and thats all the supplicant will ever get?
In which case, although the Reply-Message attribute is also supported in 
PoD the client will never actually recieve it when using EAP ?
