Note that the REFEDS discovery work (or rather NISO ESPRESSO, on which
it is based) has shown that "branding" at discovery step may not be
the "advantage" you claim it to be above: What I want is access to my
resources and applications (SP). What I need to know is the name of my
institution (IDP). Everything else is just distraction and noise.
