----- ikev2-bis-07 section 2.16, last paragraph ------------

When the initiator authentication uses EAP, it is possible that the contents of the IDi payload is used only for AAA routing purposes and selecting which EAP method to use. This value may be different from the identity authenticated by the EAP method. It is important that policy look ups and access control decisions use the actual authenticated identity. Often the EAP server is implemented in a separate AAA server that communicates with the IKEv2 responder. In this case, the authenticated identity has to be sent from the AAA server to the IKEv2 responder.

It says the authenticated EAP identity "has to" be send from AAA server, my interpretation and implementation "has to" is obvious MUST. If AAA doesn't send the authenticated EAP identity, what should be the behavior? Also, what if AAA server EAP server is not AAA server?
