A large part of the point of font-feature-settings is to allow font designers and web authors access to the features they need without waiting for standardizers and browser implementers to catch up with every new feature, registered or not. This will be particularly important in specialized technical or minority-language contexts, where the community needing a feature may struggle to push it through the standardization process in a timely manner.
