The old HP switches used to convert the Reply-Message into an EAP-Notification and send it after the EAP-Success or EAP-Failure.

The native OSX supplicant used to log this even though it never displayed it to the user.
The Windows supplicant ignored it completely.
WPA_Supplicant restarted authentication and went into an infinite authentication loop.

It may be possible to send it before the EAP-Success/EAP-Failure message for some EAP methods, but chances are not all supplicants will like it, and most probably won't display anything.
