At the moment its future is undecided. Creating a general use context
may not be possible in a reliable way. For example, if it needs to be
done from attributes that the client sends, there may not be enough
variation. Clients may give up a dialog at any point too. Creating a
State on server side is not always possible either because a State
attribute may already be sent by an upstream proxy.

I would use this approach. It lets you better control and understand
what is the current state of then authentication request-resposne exchange.
