Um, this makes no sense at all. There's a 'normal' keyword, which does the
appropriate thing and undoes what font-feature-settings does. There's
absolutely no reason to have a feature that turns all OpenType features
unilaterally off. Even if there was a reason, it'd be the 0.000000000000001%
use case, at which point, just make a custom font without any features.
