LECP is not mobile-specific. It supports any non-HTTP user agent, not 
only those in mobile environments.

The proxy is not necessary, and therefore, not "relied upon" by the 
profile. The proxy is an optional constituent of the profile - one that 
better supports current mobile SSO environments. I believe that better 
support for the environments both of SAML vendors and SAML customers 
*is* in scope for SAML.

As has been explained by others, there is a "value add" in that the 
mobile world brings many new customers for SAML technology. In 
addition, LECP opens up a world of non-HTTP support for SAML 
technology; something that customers of this technology will likely 
welcome, and which will enable vendors to better support their 
customers' needs.
