[j-nsp] Ascend-??? radius attributes on Juniper ERX

Is there a reason why Ascend-Data-Filter would be ignored on a Juniper ERX 
BRAS? We do not have direct access to the BRAS (it is own by the incumbent 
telco) but would like to configure filters using Ascend-Data-Filter. According 
to the Juniper documentation, the attribute is supported and there are no 
special commands to turn it on. The same radius profile works just fine with a 
Cisco BRAS, so it must be something specific to the ERX. Interesting enough, 
the Ascend-Client-Primary-Dns attribute does not work either, it should also 
be supported according to the documentation. So the problem seems to be 
specific to the Ascend-* attributes, other VSAs work just fine (like the 
Unisphere-* VSAs, for example Unisphere-Primary-Dns).

And no, we do not want to Unisphere-Ingress-Policy-Name and 
Unisphere-Egress-Policy-Name, as we want to control the filters from the 
radius server not select an already preconfigured filter on the BRAS.

Any help will be appreciated.
