The intent was that the values under dependency type='feature' should contain
the group of optional-features from the relevant section in the spec and a
derived group of features which are defined throughout the spec as optional for
implementations. For example in the spec (see:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery-30/#id-basics) it states  that the namespace-axis
is optional for implementations.

The features gathered from the query dependencies.xq do all appear somewhere in
the spec. Nevertheless, as you have stated we need to document them somewhere.

I hope to do this. Any suggestions?

We can provide some documentation in catalog-schema.xsd relating to the
references of the features in the spec, but this is only possible as comment
documentation. Anything more we would need to be using schema 1.1, which is not
good, we would be destabilize people's test drivers.

We could also do this all in query to map the features to references in the

Maybe you are right. But I am not sure. Maybe someone can comment on this.

No. I think I have have addressed this under point 1.
