Seems pretty sound to me, I’ll just stick with the old school data connector definitions for now.  And thanks for the recommendation about disabling artifact resolution all together.  This will make my deployment a bit easier.

Much obliged,

That will prevent it from responding to requests via that binding, avoiding cases where the SP might get sent one and then not find an endpoint to resolve it with.

They're useful for some things but very limiting in others.
