I did not really study SAML in detail. I just followed a few links  
around and read a few threads.
But yes, my guess is that this can be very GRDDLable.

Not sure who would be best to do it though. It may be worth getting in  
contact with some of the people at Sun that I pointed to from the  
thread you mentioned [1] to find out how that could be done.

Hopefully if I can get Beatnik [2] to  be useful enough - soon - then  
people will start seeing the point of this and do it of their own  

So I am really working on Beatnik full time right now.
