I'm curious as to the contrast in approach taken by this draft versus the
DHCP option. Given the recent activity on encapsulation of RADIUS
attributes in DHCP, isn't it important for the DHCP option and the RADIUS
attribute to take similar approaches?

For example, if the goal is to make both the client and RADIUS server
aware of their location, then the NAS might pass a location attribute to
the RADIUS server, as well as passing this to the DHCP server in a relay
option. Encoding the information two very different ways seems like it
results in unnecessary overhead.
