It's tucked in underneath configuring the attribute filter:

FWIW, we're not sending those, and from what I've heard, they're 
actually looking for SAML attributes with those literal names, as 
opposed to the "standard" urn: formatted names.

So if someone wanted to do this, you would first define new attributes 
in attribute-resolver.xml that get the appropriate values you want to 
send, and add an AttributeEncoder of type SAML2String and names 
"givenName" and "mail".  Then configure attribute-filter.xml to release 
those attribute to the ArcGIS SP.
