As a follow up, someone over here has pointed out that service providers 
may have defined in an attribute map:

  <Attribute name="urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:st" id="st"/>

So perhaps there's some common application or IIS header also called st? 
Even if we're not releasing anything called st, this potentially breaks 
most AD-joined IIS servers with Shibboleth, *if* this is coming from a 
standard AD attribute, and *if* the state attribute is already defined 
in the SP attribute map.

Thanks all,
