We're loading the SAML logout for each SP within iframes on our identity provider's logout page.
The Identity provider then displays a message based on the logout status returned by the SP

We currently think we need the setting on the cookie to make this work.

No, not really. When I can, that's all I can say. Most of the major work is done but the cookie changes are huge and need testing.

With Chrome unlikely to remove the 2 minute rule and nobody else moving rapidly to change the default, I don't see much urgency.

If you mean they don't care about Safari breaking, they can do that already. The change includes the ability to accommodate Safari.

It also doesn't matter for logout, the SP doesn't require its cookie to be supplied for logout to work.
