    I'm not sure if some back-channel discussions have filtered back to this
    group, but the relatively recently published RFC 2938 was intended to
    alleviate some of the difficulties that have been noted.

    In particular, selectable feature-group expressions may be replaced by a
    composite identifier, so that the resulting feature expression is
    simpler. This may be particularly useful for removing inner disjunctions
    from the resulting expression.
