Re: Shibboleth.SSO vs SAML2.SSO in Relying-Party.xml
It's historical. Shibboleth.SSO refers to the original Shibboleth protocol, which had to be defined because SAML 1.1 didn't include any form of AuthnRequest. SAML 2.0 is SAML 2.0, when the specification was sufficient for the features that Shibboleth wanted to render.
I dunno how to put that explanation into that context or make the configuration file any more clear since it's designed to be terse...

The former is SAML1 web browser SSO, the latter SAML2.
