Splitting the relying-party.xml

One more question on this. Scott, you said that metadata filters can be defined in separate files now. So, circling back to a variant of the question from my first note in this thread, is it better to add a second metadata providers config file as a second resource in services.xml or via a <import> element in the default metadata-providers.xml? I'm assuming a second resource in services.xml, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

By moving all of it to SAML metadata, basically, same as CAS. There's already an implementation built that can do much more than just tagging (eg. resolving client secrets with the attribute resolver). [1] We're reviewing the metadata profile internally right now, it's just not published in the wiki yet. Should be soon.

We can probably figure out ways of bridging the formats later, the priority is just making sure the functionality is there and we already have all of it done for this format without doing extra work.
