Multiple Subjects in a single SAML V1.1 assertions should be
identical.  This is the gist of the Subject-based Profiles for SAML
V1.1 Assertions:


The reason is that there is only one Subject in a SAML V2.0 assertion,
which indicates the way it was meant to be in SAML V1.1.

Avoid multiple <AttributeStatement> elements if possible, for the sake
of interoperability.
