Microsoft uses a parameter called domain_hint that allows the RP to specify a preferred IdP.  It’s modelled after the WS-Federation “whr” parameter.

It’s mentioned at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn645542.aspx, where its description is:


[Optional] Provides a hint about the tenant or domain that the user should use to sign in. The value of the domain_hint is a registered domain for the tenant. If the tenant is federated to an on-premises directory, AAD redirects to the specified tenant federation server.

If that will do the job, maybe we can write a mini-spec to standardize that.
