Section 2.1 says:

  Where the initial EAP-Request sent by the NAS is for an
  authentication Type (4 or greater), the peer MAY respond with a Nak
  indicating that it would prefer another authentication method that is
  not implemented locally.  

It should say:

  Where the initial EAP-Request sent by the NAS is for an
  authentication Type (4 or greater), the peer MAY respond with a Nak
  indicating that it would prefer another authentication method that is
  implemented locally.  

Notes:

Remove the "not". The NAK should be requesting an authentication which is implemented, instead of preferring one which is NOT implemented.
