Commitment to Identity API/SSO in Office clients?

Hi all,

 

Rick Kirkham dumped in the SSO example project issues section on GitHub two months ago this here:

 

"I'm not sure that we don't support multitenant. The SSO preview program is in an uncertain state right now, so I can't give you any information yet."

Source: https://github.com/OfficeDev/Office-Add-in-NodeJS-SSO/issues/13

 

What exactly does that mean? Doing this kind of SSO integration of Office Add-In is an important way of bringing functionality to clients, especially when organizations com from a heavily customized Groupware system like Lotus Notes. If we are investing in this kind of pattern (which is around for a long time now), is this something we should better not do?

I should emphazise that I am not stressing the fact of multi-tenancy but the term "uncertain state" just grabbed my attention. What does that mean for software architects out there?
