So there will be two methods of requesting attributes in conjunction
with <samlp:AuthnRequest>:

1. By reference via AttributeConsumingServiceIndex
2. By value via <md:RequestedAttribute>

Scott is working on (1) in conjunction with errata, and Sampo has
proposed (2).  In the end, the two approaches should be semantically
equivalent, that is, the normative language describing each approach
should be the same.
