Allow NAM's WSFed/WSTrust to use Kerberos based SSO

WSTrust with Office 365 currently has a major limitation in that only the the only default method that works is the Secure Name/Password-Form method. This means that when a domain is federated with NAM Office apps display the IDP authentication screen inside the app's mini-browser. This contrasts with the experience given in this respect by Azure AD's Seamless SSO which leverages Kerberos to silently authenticate on-prem domain-joined browsers and apps to the cloud. Furthermore only the latter is extensible with MFA methods. NAM seemingly has all the right pieces to do the equivalent, but they don't work to make cloud enabled Office silent for the user. Fixing this is a good way to keep customers who might otherwise jump.
