Hmm, that looks like a more detailed version of what is already being discussed on the wiki page for ADFS v2, including the issue with having to interactively select the shibboleth IDP from the ADFS landing page (barring cookie insertion via an external load balancer).

My understanding is that we are running ADFS v3, and indeed unfortunately cannot simply tweak IIS to get rid of the interactivity. I asked our Windows guys to see if they could find any way to automatically pick shibboleth via some mechanism on the ADFS server itself, but so far no go.
