Ok, so if the SP wants a login URL, that's what they'd used. We can leave it to them to figure out how they want to present it to the user?

Every single thing you come up with, the answer is going to be "the same way you would have otherwise", with the exception that instead of "accessing the application" to login, you now have a web link that has to go somewhere and the problem of getting people to know about it.

This whole thread started off because I didn't know what to do with an SP who will not provide metadata. After some digression which I think the gist of was, metadata is not technically required, I tried to come to an understanding of unsolicited SSO. But now it seems like SP's metadata will be necessary after all for the IdP to provide attributes and/or a specific NameIDFormat? And if the SP will not provide the metadta themselves, we'll need to cobble some together for them?
