1) Re the experimental object class, x-eduPerson and the trial attribute, eduPersonPrincipalNamePrior, see the draft specification, x-eduPerson (201206) linked at the top of Current Activities on the MACE-Dir wiki page:

2) Re representing Grouper permissions in LDAP or SAML:

One avenue is to start from the fact that the permission-related APIs and web services delivered by Grouper include methods that could be considered a form of Policy Decision Point (PDP).  So one question becomes a choice of models between figuring out a way to pass (relatively complex) Grouper permissions as SAML attributes one the one hand and having SPs invoke a PDP service via Grouper web service calls.  To my understanding, little if any of the machinery to support the second model is in place at present.  

The question of representing permissions in LDAP is a different matter. Perhaps a good starting place for that discussion would be to identify characteristic use cases that might rely on such a practice.

For an example of what a Grouper permission looks like in serialized form, see the json example included in:

(re-concatenate the above URL before attempting to resolve it).

3) I am working on eduPerson (201203a), the errata version of eduPerson (201203) with updated language in the notes to phone number and address attributes.  If I complete that before the call, I'll send out a notice.
