Well, wherever they belong it wouldn't be here.  This is about names of
SAML Attributes, not identifiers in other schema elements.

normalization in what sense?

Regarding LDAP/X.500, the interesting scope question to me is whether, as
I have heard suggested, there should be a listing of actual attribute
definitions (attribute types in X.500 terms), eg commonName, that should
form some base good-to-implement list.  I can see the appeal in this, but
it can also be a can of worms, since, among other reasons, some of these
attribute types themselves are not necessarily defined with the precision
one might like for particular applications (eg "mail").  I think that if
this is needed it can be a post-2.0 thing.
