BTW, related to BRSKI is that the 6tisch CoJP protocol uses 6tisch.arpa
in the CoAP header.

(Not that we'd use the same one, but registering it wasn't hard)

i.e. an EAP Failure message.

Owen, do we have a need to recognize that a device needs to perform
onboarding again after a movement?

i.e. device A enrolls on network 1, gets an LDevID usable on network 1,
uses that with EAP-FOOBAR.

device A then is moved to network 2, it tries to use same LDevID,
receives an error and then recognizes that it needs to perform another

What is that error, and is it recognizeable?  Do we need a new error
code to distinguish from "I reject you" from "I reject you but, you
could try enrolling with BRSKI-TEAP"

(hoping re-installed laptop works)
