AFAIK the best document is the SAML 2.0 metadata spec (which you've no
doubt read).  An IndexedEndpoint has a unique integer associated with
it.  This integer is referenced in a number of situations.

For example, a SAML 2.0 artifact has a two-byte EndpointIndex
associated with it.  When the receiving entity processes the artifact,
the EndpointIndex is extracted and a metadata lookup is performed.  In
this way, the receiver knows what artifact resolution endpoint at the
issuer to contact.

Hope this helps,
