This is not compliant with the EAP specification (EAP-Notification
needs to be sent prior to completion of an EAP authentication method).
Sending it after EAP-Success or EAP-Failure would look like an attempt
to initiate another authentication exchange.

EAP-Notification is not really supported in general and even the
specification does not really require displaying anything from this
message to the user.. There is also no way of authenticating this
information, so this would not be ideal for authorization failures.
