It doesn't make any difference.

You have to lnow the syntax of the attributes you want to receive and then
what you plan to do with them. That determines the decoder that applies.
If they're simple strings, then the default behavior is sufficient.

You would have to discuss that with your partner. We can't tell you what
they plan to provide you and whether the NameID is significant or not.
