I'm not a fan of making the properties file carry documentation, so I prefer to stick to making sure we document any unclear properties. If need be, I'd rather we just create a whole index of properties and any notes about them vs. putting anything in the file itself.

The latter are the problem. There will probably end up being a MetadataFilter to add EncryptionMethod elements to metadata like we did with NameIDFormats.

All joking aside, I don't expect to see anything change unless people start imposing actual security requirements on their vendors. It's why all cloud auditing is apparently a joke if this isn't even on their radar.
