Having thought about this over lunch, I'm guessing that your assumption
is, given you have to be a US academic institution to register an IDP in
InCommon, that an InCommon IDP authentication authorizes the principal
as someone who is a US academic researcher?

Given that those SPs don't want to serve principals from other
federations, why can't you use the InCommon metadata only in the SP

Would it be possible to accept a *.edu scope in an affiliation attribute
to identify US registered academic principals?

How strict do you need to be? Would it suffice to have a self
certification during first login?
