  I'm happy to update the server with more examples.

  I will NOT break the default configuration so that it works "better" for one set of users, at the expense of another set of users.  It's OK for you to not need NAS-Port in Acct-Unique-Session-Id.  But other people need it there.

  And how do you tell which scenario is which?  You edit your local configuration.

  It is almost impossible to set up the default configuration to automatically detect these things.  There are just too many unknowns.
