  Sure.  It's good to see the NAI recommendations of RFC 7542 being more widely adopted.  :)

  My question though is this a use-case for 802.1X?  Are users really capable now of entering one identity for the outer routing, and a completely different one for the inner one?  Or do the users use MDM to do it?

  I haven't seen wide-spread use of different realms in EAP, but maybe I'm not talking to the right people.

  I think it's useful to give guidance on pros/cons of this issue.  If using different inner/outer realms is a common practice, then it would be good to explain when that's used, and why.
