Peter's point aside, it seems like the closest you'd come to this kind of
thing is really to simulate a logout, and have the SP direct the user
needing this capability to a script on the IdP server that clears his
cookies and then proceeds with the login request.

That way you can bypass the existing identity at the IdP, but he stays
logged in as he was to any other services.

Maybe. Probably a hole in there somewhere.
