Unless you're going to be sending unsolicited responses, it is the SP's choice that will determine which protocol is used for the transaction. If the SP sends you a SAML 2 authentication request, you will be replying using SAML 2 or not at all. An SP will of course not do that if it can see that you only support SAML 1.

Can you give us some idea as to why you want to not use SAML 2 if it's available to both parties?
