It's really not important what's the other spec. My point is that F&P deserves its own complete solution which WSDL should be able to compose with. 

WSDL's scope is to describe a single service. We should focus on what' s in scope and provide a SIMPLE BUT SUFFICIENT service description language. Anything else, including policy, security, reliability... should be left for other specs. 

Best Regards,
Kevin

Since Feature and property are such an important area, I am very concerned that we are making WSDL unnecessarily complicated while only provide a partial solution.

I curious about what you mean by 'other specs'? Can you please 
elaborate? I cannot think of any other non-proprietary spec that deals 
with this issue.
