I think some of them are mapping problems, and to the extent that SPs have
attribute mapping and manipulation functions, I think what we're after
here is a way to let them take advantage of that but communicate more
automatically to IdPs and IdP policies what to do that will let those
functions work for now.

I've already implemented a small change to V2's AttributeInMetadata
function that will basically support the idea proposed. It doesn't need to
wait for any decisions on the meta names to use. We have time before we
ship to make sure V3 doesn't lose that feature.
