Ok, will move  it to saml-nameid.xml file, as you said is more appropiate

When I have time, i will try to do a patch and file a RFE

If you know enough to do all that, then you have what you need to maintain a custom plugin if that's what you prefer to do.

The interfaces to this did change in V4 in order to make the system more fully pluggable with a stable API so your plugin will have to be different but then will be more stable thereafter.

As for "where", there's no harm in using global.xml but there's no advantage either, just putting it in saml-nameid.xml should work fine. The more scoped the beans are the better.
