I don't think it is any different then IdPs not entering mdui:
attributes to enhance discovery services used by SPs. A set of
logo URLs for images at different sizes work well,
particularly with the Shibboleth EDS.

It is not hard to find IdPs in InCommon that do not have logo
URLs, depsite having had the opportunity for quite some time
to add them in the InCommon metadata.
