What he really ended up saying was that he didn't think it was a good
thing to do. Which I don't agree with, but that moved it into the realm of
the subjective.

Well, you may well encounter them telling people that federations like
InCommon don't play any role in federating two organizations. They really
don't understand SAML at all, but in their defense, their only real
benchmark are the kinds of products that we're well aware are pretty
broken when it comes to managing federation.

I guess it's clearer to me that they learn a technology by evaluating
products, not evaluating the potential of a technology itself. Pragmatic,
and probably unavoidable.
