ACS doesn't support EAP-MD5 with Windows AD Database

I would like to know the reason why ACS cannot support EAP-MD5 with Windows AD Database? I plan to implement 802.1x on Wired and choose EAP-MD5 as the EAP protocol.

I understand that IAS can be used to implement EAP-MD5 with Windows AD database provided the user account password stored as Reversable Encryption Password in the Domain Settings.

Why cant I do the same with ACS?

Thank you.

EAP-MD5 is the lease secure protocol. Industry support for EAP-MD5 is almost very minimal. It is used in combination with other EAP techniques.
