Shibboleth SP and Azure AD IdP

I've seen recent discussion on here about using a Shibboleth IdP against the Azure SP.   I was wondering if anyone else here has been investigating doing this the other way around, we'd be interested to correspond.

We currently authenticate campus systems such as the VLE (Blackboard) and the student records system (SITS eVision) against our on campus Shibboleth IdP.  We'd be interested in moving these over to authenticate against the Azure AD SAML IdP to provide SSO with systems that already authenticate there - O365, TopDesk and some other systems coming soon.

We've recently done some experimentation with a test Shibboleth SP against Azure AD with some success, it's authenticating and receiving attributes OK ("It's SAML Jim, nearly as we know it").    Has anyone here done this,  any experience in customising attribute release?  We'd like to talk with you,  feel free to email directly and I can summarise to the list.
