Proper SAML naming is URI-based, and there is no means of creating a viable mapping from that. Any way that worked would rely on approaches that are either illegal, or I would outright reject as a practice.

That won't work either in the general case, so there is no way I know of period that doesn't make assumptions that I would not make.
