Per Vendor NAS-Port documentation

I was wondering if there has been a collective effort to document the 
meaning of the NAS-Port by the various Network Vendors?

We are working on PacketFence here (an open source NAC) and we translate 
the NAS-Port to the ifIndex so we can request a dot1x reauthentication 
to the ifIndex if we want to (ie: IDS event).

We've done the translation by ourselves since vendor documentation is 
often lacking and I was thinking there must exist such a resource. Does 
anyone here know?

I know we could use CoA with the original NAS-Port but it's less 
supported than the SNMP PAE Reauthenticate MIBs.
