Federations don't exist in SAML, so there is no technical representation of that. IDP-wise, it's not recommended to do it, but you can always enforce rules by IdP and since you can do that structurally via access control rules, you can do it with no impact on the applications as a transition tool.

And, you can. I checked, discoveryURL is a content setting. Already done.
