You can do this, but it might break things because you're using EAP.

What is the upstream proxy? If it's FreeRADIUS as well, it will 
definitely break, as FR will detect the User-Name is not equal to the 
EAP identity and assume something has gone wrong.

Can you explain why you want to do this? Obviously it's possible to 
manipulate the packet in many ways, but your goal may be best 
accomplished via a different route.
