Destination sent in URL to avoid stale sessions?

Looking at CAS... I noticed it passes along the destination in the URL:

I was curious if there was something similar for Shibboleth?  And if not..
was there reasoning for not implementing it?

Basically, something that would allow users to bookmark the Shib login page
and be able to initiate login from there next time... otherwise we need to
always have a landing page for them to bookmark... with a click here to
login link.

I appreciate the history lesson if this has already been discussed.
