And in a world where MDQ becomes the only effective way to deal with federation metadata, we really need the federations to begin providing something like the "JSON feed aggregate" you suggest, Alan. Not a Shib problem, but it is related in terms of how to effectively leverage federated SAML authentication. (I know for the ShibUI work, in order to help users target SPs they want to create a metadata filter for, you really need a full searchable federation metadata summary that has exactly the fields you highlight within it, and nothing more.)
