Just a few comments...
----
The definition of features should be moved outside of this
document and into the spec itself.  To have features mentioned
only w.r.t. bindings and then to say features could include
things like "correlation" which might not have anything to do
with bindings could lead people to assume a link between the
two that does not need to exists.  Features (or as I prefer
them to be called "extensions") are not necessarily related
to the binding (could be - but not required).
----
"It is up to the communicating nodes to decide how best to
express particular features".
This isn't correct - the binding specification decides how best
to express the features - the communicating nodes decide which
binding to use - but once the binding is picked the nodes
are not free to express features in some random fashion.
