No problem at all, rather, I would have simply thought that it lowers
the barrier to entry, requiring less concious thought on behalf of the
person configuring the RADIUS server if it is an option that can just
be toggled on and hey presto, it works. It also makes it more
discoverable as desirable behaviour.

In my limited scope testing, many NASes will ignore the User-Name
attribute and making more of a first class, default behaviour in the
most popular RADIUS server might start to change that...
