Long answers available but the shirt version is local sites want their kit to show the real user not the anonymous one but then forget to do define policy for external requests.. other sites also don't want to receive remote accounting packets so strip the realm out so they won't get them.

For proper handling of remote accounting you need to do a lot of extra work. 1 you need to handle all the bad stuff that NAS kit can that's above and beyond all the local work for your own NAS, then , to keep realm you need to create a look up table for nas/csi to keep the original outer realm so that it can be re-applied when stripped accounting username come your way
