Section 4.2.5 says:

          |                            +------------------------------+
          |                            | Server does not accept       |
          |                            | The fast re-authentication   |

          |                                                       |
          :                                                       :
          :                                                       :


          :                                                       :
          :                                                       :

It should say:

          |                            +------------------------------+
          |                            | Server does not accept       |
          |                            | The fast re-authentication   |
          |                            | Identity                     |
          |                            +------------------------------+
          |                                                       |
          |     EAP-Request/AKA-Identity                          |
          |     (AT_FULLAUTH_ID_REQ)                              |
          |<------------------------------------------------------|

Notes:

In Section 4.2.5, Figure 9 (on page 31) contains six lines that
might erroneously be misunderstod to indicate the omission of
some protocol steps (which is not the case).
I suspect that this is an artifact from a draft version where
Figure 9 was split over two pages; after joining the parts,
these continuation indicators have become ambiguous, and hence
should be deleted.
