Yes, that is certainly very important. Many of the most common 
properties are not unique to any specific feature of interest and its type


@Maxime. Just to understand the motivating for the way you guys did it 
in SEAS wrt your code below (and the wiki page). The task is to make 
statements about particular features of interest and their particular 
relations, correct?

Best,
Jano
