SAML includes "Holder" (Subject) when the saml:Attribute is in a
saml:AttributeStatement.  SAML includes "Issuer" and "IssueInstant"
when the AttributeStatement is in a saml:Assertion.

Are we redefining these to make them more compact (i.e. we don't
need MajorVersion, MinorVersion, AssertionID, Conditions,
Advice)?  Or is the main motivation to allow for our own
definition of "Subject" rather than using SAML's string plus
NameQualifier and Format attributes?  Or for some other reason?
