I don't see a problem with that at all.  If they don't care enough to
shout about the feature they're working on, it's not important enough
for it to be a feature.

Conversely, if someone other than the developer wants to shout about it
as a feature, then they can write the documentation.

IMHO, we have entirely too many things that are _barely_ features or
are quite nebulous.  I fear we play a bit too much "keeping up with the
Ubuntus".  If we want to tout something as a feature, we should be
willing to write up why.
