Out of curiousity, what are the advantages of using native Kerberos, rather 
than PAP inside a tunneled method which the AAA server verifies against the 
KDC? (this is how FreeRADIUS currently implements "Kerberos" 
authentication).

Perhaps I'm being a bit dim, but I feel like I'm missing the point.

Or is the point simply to define a mechanism that EAP and GSS can share?
