Splitting the relying-party.xml

Ah, got it! That all makes sense and is definitely cleaner than the lists in the relying-party.xml and even slightly better than setting up a bunch of metadata tags that I then have to map to overrides manually. Thank you!

So, when might we see metadata-driven (or similar) overrides for the OIDC profiles? At present, the big limitation to the OIDC implementation is that we can't put tags in metadata that I know of, and there's no facility for tagging clients after the metadata is loaded. We've got a set of clients that have different constraints on token lifetime, and it'd be great to not have to manually maintain a list of them in a relying party override.

That much is certainly a given, but what I really meant was that you should simply add the settings themselves to the metadata and not use overrides at all. The .MDDriven parent beans automate all that. [1]

But there's no question...you shouldn't bother with updating lists of SPs in that file, that's definitely not the way to go. Custom tags is certainly better than that.
