Any other opinions on this? let us close the discussion and go for the 

Just to summarize:
    1) remove UserName RADIUS attribute from RADIUS accounting;
        Pros: it will be aligned with SQL and SYSLOG which do not log 
this value
                 minimal changes: in most of the cases, as SIP ID is the 
same as AUTH ID,
                        logging FROM will be the same
                 more flexibility in billing information - in most of 
the cases the billing ID is not
                        the UserName  value
                 less unnecessary stuff to be logged if not really required
        Contras: it may require some extra config in some cases

    2) remove Cseq, FROM URI, TO URI also - they are not dialog relevant 
and also from
                 billing point of view -> log less data and if really 
required are easy to add via
                 extra accounting.
