  The Class attribute is defined to behave this way.  Most NASes implement it.

  You *cannot* use any other attribute, because you don't control the NAS behaviour.

  Be also aware that many NASes won't handle Class attributes longer than 16 octets.  If you need more than that, you're better off storing the strings in a local DB, and using Class to transport some 16-byte key into the DB.
