Yes, Since we never had SAML2 ACS so far on SP side, we are assuming there were no SAML2 only IDP that we were interacting with currently. So our assumption was that nothing will break as of today even if we did not update the metadata.  But we started adding the SAML2 ACS points in metadata's anyway so we should be safe I guess.
