Yes, but metadata is about roles, and so are those labels. An SP or IdP is
a thing that acts as one. It may also act as other things.

It really makes no difference.

No, that's incorrect. The original metadata standard already includes a
role for AttributeAuthorityDescriptor (the server side of the query) and
InCommon already supports it.

You may not be supporting registering an AA *alone* without an
IdPSSODescriptor role, though, which would be an issue, yes.
