Thats the point. I would need support for new payload attributes on
both peers. Maybe Strongswan could support a callback function for private
payload attribute types? (Hopefully I wasn't too blind to see)

Cisco did not hesitate to use the private attributes for IKEv1. Do you
think it would be possible to support similar private attributes for
IKEv2 on both sides, as Cisco did?

Just a suggestion, of course. Keep on your good work.
