Yes, I take your point. It was the specific case of MAC authentication for wireless on Cisco controllers I was thinking about. That involves a request with Service-Type set to "Call-Check", and the username set to the MAC address. It gets an Accept or Reject, and the controller will ignore any other attributes. In a more general context of course you're right

  That's not true.

  VLAN assignment and authentication method are completely independent of each other.
