Mohammad asked about any specs that have discussed uses of SAML tokens as

Scott noted in reviewing the draft that one of the attribute value types
defined is an HL7 structure that is a complex XML value. A lot of
implementations struggle with that. Common approaches are to unroll that
into separate SAML attributes, or to base64-encode the data and pass it in
