I've seen the term 'feature' being used several times in the BB threads.
But is it an abstract concept with no concrete representation in the Jam/BB
Or is feature somehow a keyword too?

For a BB novice like me, it's unclear reading your example.
If 'feature' is just a name in that example, a different less-generic name
might clear up that confusion IMHO. My $0.02. --DD
