The dictionary just translates the numbers to something you can
understand. The NAS NEVER gets anything but the numbers, so it doesn't
really matter what you name the attribute as its irrelevant to the
NAS. Be careful when changing attribute names, though, as the calls
tables (and several other in RadiusNT 3) dynamically fill columns
based on the name. If you changed Caller-ID to User-Caller-ID, then the
CallerID field in the calls table would not get filled in anymore.
