Subject Knowledge base for SAML2 product interoperability?

Does anyone know if someone maintains a knowledge base for interoperability of SAML2 products, especially those interesting for higher education?

We just tested Geneva Server beta 1 with Shibboleth 2.x SP, it works well except that Geneva provides attribute names
<Attribute Name="urn:oid:">
and Shibboleth SP expects by default
<saml:Attribute Name="urn:oid:" NameFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:attrname-format:uri">
The Shib SP default behaviour can be changed but needs a config change for each SP.

It would be nice to have a knowledge base for this kind of issues so that everyone does not need to start from zero.

Does it make sense to use the Refeds wiki for this?
