Very Interesting! Thanks!

The notation seems to be working; your diagram of Mutex features is much
easier to understand that pure text descriptions IMO. Looks like you got
the +'s and |'s right, too.

You might want to a short description of the Mutex concept itself, or link
to a description of the concept.

You also might want to add a link to for the benefit of
those not familiar with the feature diagram notation.

A feature diagram is a design tool which allows us to visualize feature
variations for some concept. It isn't a commitment to actually include the
features in a final design. It also doesn't specify how the features are
to be packaged, or the time of binding. All that comes later.
