Yes (for upgraded IdPs). New installs do not load the resolver file into the registry so it doesn't see or generate rules based on AttributeEncoders.

You can, but the purpose isn't to get it to "produce" the Attribute, it's to attach the AttributeEncoder so that the id and the claim name are connected. If you don't put the AttributeEncoder there, it won't work, and in turn it will generate a SAML Attribute by that name on the wire on the way out if it releases that also.
