I think this could be a reasonable approach, although I would like to
see the work of standardizing specific mechanisms and work to generalize
methods start in parallel.  

As far as mechanisms go I think it is relatively important to get a
revision of EAP-TLS into the standards track.  Through the use of TLS
you can cover X.509 and pre-shared key credentials.  I think there is
also  interest in the EAP community to standardize additional pre-shared
key mechanisms (EAP-PSK, EAP-PAX)  and tunneled methods (PEAP, TTLS,
EAP-FAST).
