Thanks Scott. I agree with your point. Unspecified in my example was just for illustration. The behavior is same regardless of the NameID format used. I am glad that I am doing it correct. And this is not an issue per se. But the question came out of curiosity to know if I am doing anything incorrect as I noticed this difference between v3 and v4. Thanks again for the response !
