Yes: it's a lot more work to treat variants specially than to simply treat
them as any other composite feature. Why deduce all the missing default
properties for a variant when they might need to be overridden by a build
request or a derived variant anyway? It's easier just to fill in the
defaults when you know the build request, requirements, and variant.
