(displaying multiple personalities here...)

The above could also be achieved by using query strings

<feature name="http://clothing.com/api?pants=fancy&amp;color=green"/>

Or another way:

<feature name="http://clothing.com/api/pants/facy/green"/>

But I think using an <option> element is easier to work with...
