I get that, but rekeying tends to be impossible in general. My point is that the majority of these SPs are perfectly happy to run along with no changes if the IdP would just *test* it. Certainly in the case of Shibboleth SPs, and it's easy enough to know which are which.

It's one thing to try and get a ton of people to do a ton of work that requires joint coordination and discussion. It's another to flip an option and just run some tests, one by one.

Note that "I don't have access" isn't relevant. That's what impersonation is for. I do it all the time where it's necessary to maintain the operational state of my service.
