I hear what you're saying but from the PoV of a SP with paying customers
that conversation is not as simple: you have to do what you have to do
to make the service work.

You are not in a position to tell your customers to "get your act together".

What the commercial SPs are telling us and what I can confirm from my
experience with the NORDUnet adobe connect SPs is that the way we
manage attribute release don't scale beyond the local federation.
