Subject: RE: [saml-dev] Why no issuer in SAML Artifact Document?

A SAML artifact is not a document. It's a string, generally fixed length,
that is encoded with the information required to locate the peer who sent a
corresponding message.

If the artifact structure doesn't provide you the information you need, then
you have a different use case and probably shouldn't use artifacts.

You could also define your own artifact format, but nobody else is likely to
support it. If you think the format is necessary to the standard, then you
should probably consider joining the TC and submitting it as a proposal.
