I missed them apparently. I know *we* only used "net.shibboleth.idp.profile.spring.factory.BasicX509CredentialFactoryBean" in the config, which I guess was explicitly made public? Seems weird to have one in the API and the others not, apart from just prioritization/time.

Yeah, I guess I'm saying we need to support X formats by means of either documentation and/or factory beans if needed. I think we just sort of punted that off.
