I'll note that along with your current observation of its viability in the document.

That part is just of a piece with the rest, it's not real documentation, it's just "what somebody who happened to hack up a working integration told them worked". It's more of an uneducated and poorly designed "How To" that doesn't tell me anything about what they support or require. I don't need vendors to document Shibboleth (badly), I need them to just document their own bloody systems.

If you get any farther with them, please update here or just update the update I made to the page with whatever you find out.
