Shibboleth EDS and Azure

Hi All,

I've set up a Shibboleth SP with EDS that speaks to a couple of o365
tenancies &  openAthens.
It's working OK except for one small issue.

The metadata provided by Azure is missing human friendly information, like
the md:OrganizationName
So the only element that ends up in the EDS JSON is the entityid, which is
rather ungly and as it always has "" at the start,
doesnt allow you to differentiate between tenancies.

the first is more for microsoft than this arena, does anyone know how to
get Microsoft to release more useful SAML metadata?
My second question, is there a way to inject something into the metadata in
the shibboleth2.xml that will be picked up by EDS?
