Unpick NameID Encoders and beyond

      Description

      I started looked and got lost so I need to go back in time and read some code and refresh memory is.

      • In V3.4 SAML1StringNameIdentifier (encoder) and it's friends are deprecated (but promoted to the flattened schema)
        • Aside: SAML2NameID (attribute) / SAML2XMLObject (encoder) most definitely isn't.
      • This ties into the NameID generation stuff via all sorts wiring specifically for legacy NameID generation
      • Which might argue that said wiring can be rationalized.

      The first bullet is easy and could be part of IDP-1121, moving down the bullet lists moves me out of my comfort zone (but into code I need to re-learn) whilst at the same time moves us into higher risk of merge conflicts.

      Nonetheless it feels important follow through and complete the unpicking so I'm opening a new case. That way I can start the work and put it aside until we open master for all comers.

      Hence a separate case
