The only way it's possible for the IdP to not populate at least a transient NameID is...I don't know, I know of no way for that to happen in the code without commenting out core settings in ways nobody would ever think to do. I suppose if the entire generation layer was corrupted and not starting but wasn't fail fast that might do it.

Transient is the default Format when nothing else is requested or usable, and an SP asking for something it can't get results in an error, not a missing NameID.
