No they don't. I just explained why in my previous email.
(TL;DR: By sending SAML 2.0 persistent NameIDs instead of sending SAML
2.0 persistent NameIDs wrapped into a legacy SAML Attribute.)

You may be able to find a very small number of other SPs in our
metadata that request ePTID but do NOT support persiststent NameIDs at
this time, I'd have to check.

Doing that would be easier (and have a greater chance of success than
zero) if such a request were backed by an international agreement of
some kind, say, a guidelines document from a library-driven group with
diverse membership, let's call it... FIM4L?
