Permanent Identity in wpa_supplicant

I was pondering though the code for wpa_supplicant (0.5.6) and I saw
that when the identity is retrieved, in eap_sim_get_identity(), (for
EAP-SIM at least), only the reauthentication or the pseudonym identity
is returned. In the RFC for EAP-SIM in section Format of the
Permanent Username it is stated that the client should return a
permanent identity based on the IMSI if the server requires it. Is there
a reason for this being omitted in wpa_supplicant?
