That is an excellent idea. We also had an idea about producing and publishing 
feature dictionaries, which detailed the Feature data added by vendors.

Hi Nathan,

don't you think it might be a good idea to be able to specify the 
provider/application of features
as an optional attribute of Feature, especially in top-level embedded Features, 
or alternatively
to specify some code of "good practice" about feature naming (ex. 
provider:name) ?

Hi Gordon,

The source attribute is used to point to additional data related to the

feature element. It could be a document, image, web site URL or just about

any other reference.

Hi Nathan,

What does actually the "source" attribute of the "Feature" element

represent ?

Is it meant to differentiate features from different

providers/applications which might have the same code ?

If yes, is there a prefix registry or or some good practice rules about

how to use it ?

Best regards,
