+1, I've asked for this feature too.

We've run into a case where it would be nice to be able to pass into the /authorize endpoint a value to pre-fill the loginid field on the authentication UI. We allow for an id_token to be passed as a hint of the desired user, but this only works for an "already authenticated" use case.

If we consider the Account Chooser case where what is stored is the user's email address, it would be nice to be able to start the identity federation flow passing that email address along to the IdP.

Did I just miss support for this in the specs?
