Yes, absolutely.  But if I were the SP in question, I would fear that
supplying just a strong EC key in metadata would be more likely to lead to
interoperability failures or unencrypted assertions with most IdP's, which
lack the code to deal with EC keys at all.  The ideal may be the enemy of
the good in this instance.
