Real world Authentication Context

Responding to a challenge by Dave Kearns, Symlabs responds on the topic of real-world application of SAML's Authentication Context.

Symlabs writes
At Symlabs, we see our customers using AuthnContext for information about how a user was provisioned in the first place, and also how the user was authenticated for the current session.
Symlabs was instrumental in getting the mobile authentication contexts defined, because our wireless operator customers requested our participation in this area.
Indeed, I remember well the after-hours session (Paris?) with Sampo thrashing out the mobile classes for ID-FF.

Separately, Sampo should blog, it would be ... 'interesting'.
