I'd like to reiterate my earlier comment that a statement by a document that
it requires a certain feature is DIFFERENT from a features manifest for a
parser that lets you find features and perhaps turn them on or off.  One is
a property of a document, the other is a behavior of a piece of software.

It seems likely that these two concepts could be coordinated, or at least
informed by each other.  For example, they should use the same names for
equivalent features, like "external-entities".
