I would disagree on this. Last year in EduGAIN, the European
interfederation including hundreds of IdPs, only a very small amount
were supporting ECP. I did a check on the metadata.

Additionally, some IdP implementations do not support ECP
out-of-the-box and for the one providing such support, it requires a
different authentication mechanism compared to the one used for the
redirect or post profile so many IdPs are not supporting this

The work to support ECP is equally distributed among the IdP and SP
although it is getting more common in the IdPs with last release of
IdPs software such as shibboleth IdP v3.
