What was needed was a discovery service that covered multiple federations - i.e. some kind of universal discovery service... like Wayfinder. 

What does Wayfinder mean for an end-user?

For the end-user: Wayfinder provides a consistent discovery experience over all the resources that use it. Depending on settings it can even remember the users' home organisation across services.  There's more on this in the OpenAthens Wayfinder UX page.

For services it provides an organisation discovery process that works for as many SAML federations as the service provider is a member of - there is no need to maintain your own discovery service and no need to present potentially confusing choices to the end user. Wayfinder automatically filters for only the organisations that are in the same federation(s) as the referring service provider and has the potential to be even more discerning. There's more about the how in the Enabling OpenAthens Wayfinder pages.
