    FWIW, most of the organisations I've worked with to implement SharePoint and SAML claims *have* used AD. SAML has been used to simplify identity federation. I agree that including a directory-agnostic People Picker and Claims Provider would be unrealistic, but compatibility with AD would be a good start in my book.

    Russ Maxwell blogged about this. I think you can set /_trust/ as the custom sign in page for the default zone, which negates the need for an additional zone. I've briefly tested this solution and it appears to work. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/russmax/archive/2014/10/31/bypassing-multiple-authentication-providers-in-sharepoint-2013.aspx

    Nonetheless, it would be nice for this to "just work", rather than having to implement this slightly obscure workaround.
