The place for storing identity data about your second class of people
does not need to be the institutions IdM system (and I also don't
think these belong in Grouper) -- it could also be an "open" IdP
somewhere else.
At least as long as the data there is self-asserted anyway you might
as well accept identities from or (or
whatever) just the same.
