The InCommon team, probably Nick Roy, can speak to the capabilities of
the federation manager past and present.

I suspect that most if not all of the embedded logos you currently see
are those coming into the InCommon metadata aggregate through eduGAIN.
Using embedded images is more popular in other federations.

I understand why the embedded logos are attractive but at this time I
would prefer they are not used. The InCommon metadata aggregate is
already quite large and adding embedded logos will only make the problem

Once InCommon supports the MDQ protocol in production I think embedding
the logos is an elegant solution, but until that time I would like to
keep the aggregate from growing at an even faster rate and prefer that
entities use https:// URLs instead.
