I really don't think we should go down that route. Whether a specific
API works with a specific feature is really something that is practically
only determined at the time the API is invoked, as whether it works or
not may depend on the full set of arguments you pass to the API.

IOW, at most I would list which pool driver backends are present
in the capabilities.
