Section 6.1 says:

Typically, the Dynamic Authorization Server will extract the realm
   from the Network Access Identifier [RFC4282] included within the
   User-Name or Chargeable-User-Identity Attribute, and determine the
   corresponding RADIUS servers in the realm routing tables.

It should say:

Typically, the Dynamic Authorization Server will extract the realm
   from the Network Access Identifier [RFC4282] included within the
   User-Name and determine the
   corresponding RADIUS servers in the realm routing tables.

Notes:

Chargeable-User-Identity Attribute defined in RFC4372 does not allow any entity other then the home network to parse the CUI attribute. It is in essence opaque. Here is the text:
"RADIUS entities other than the Home RADIUS
server MUST treat the CUI content as an opaque token, and SHOULD
NOT perform operations on its content other than a binary equality
comparison test, between two instances of CUI."
