Right.  I guess I forgot about that after using directed identity for
a few cases just like this.  I'd argue that directed identity with a
fixed OP URL can provide a nicer workflow for these sort of closed
environments though:
 1. the RP need not ask for a user name, so all authentication occurs on the OP.
 2. If the user is already authenticated to the OP, the user could be
authenticated to the RP without having to enter any input (if
 3. As mentioned earlier, the user does not need to know their
identity URL (or even that they have one) -- they only need ot know
