My question is, then, since those attributes are so standard with IPv6 RADIUS accounting, and they each store different things, why are those three fields not already in the database schema? Is it just because nobody has submitted a patch (pull request) that adds those three fields into the schema and adds the proper queries?

  Yes.  There's limited time in a day.

I might assume the latter, but in that event, I'm just concerned that it's going to end up being a big mess when it comes to software that integrates with FreeRADIUS/MySQL if everybody adds those fields themselves but they name them in different ways.

  I did say 2 messages ago to send a pull request... I don't need to be convinced.  Please just send a pull request.  It's not hard.
