The weasel language was all that was agreed to during the process, if people
can agree to more now, that's fine.

I think I probably misspoke on the attributes though. I think the IdP is
free to insert or modify the conditional attributes to some degree.
Certainly so in the case of an AuthnRequest.

NameID in this context is somewhat like KeyInfo, identifying something for
implementations, but not really in a normative way. It would be legal for
the NameID to identify the same principal in different ways, I think. At
least, that would be my opinion.

That said, it's probably not all that useful to do that, not to the same
degree as with KeyInfo.

All in all, I don't think anything but Method is very safe to assume
anything about.
