Feature proponents: Can someone please give some explanatory
sentences that explains what a feature is? The current wording
is, um, recursive:

    "A Feature component describes a particular feature that
     a Web service accepts or requires in particular interactions."

While its cool to have a recursive definition, it doesn't help
anyone understand what a feature is supposed to be. Maybe there's
wording in the SOAP spec we can borrow (or refer to). Can someone
take this on please? Glen?

Sanjiva.
