You can't (assuming they won't fix it). The empty KeyName element is not valid in SAML and the SP blocks empty element to prevent null pointer crashes all over the code from accessing content that's not supposed to be null without adding even more checking than it has to do already. It's a blanket security measure that limits the attack surface.
