So in addition to the XPath attribute profile - used only for queries -
you'd like something like an "XML document attribute profile" to define
the attribute name as a document or document namespace - used for
attribute statements in assertions.

In addition, the authnRequest will either reference an attribute
consuming service index or the IDP could use the default attribute
consuming service published in metadata for the SP.  If xpath attributes
are not used for assertions, I still assume that XPath attributes would
apply to attribute consuming services.
