That was my intention, mostly. Obviously some of the elements of the
feature module have to be able to manipulate implicit feature values, just
to reconstitute the properties

There's already feature.expand-subfeatures. Doesn't that do what you want?


P.S. I'm not very happy with the module names and division of
responsibility between feature.jam and property.jam. Maybe property.jam
should be renamed property-set.jam and some of the functionality moved
