No time for testing, but a suggestion I'd for a while: currently
features supported in base mode need to be registered explicitly based
on assumption that certain features tags will be used with lookup types
supported in base mode. But in practice a feature tag can contain any
lookup, e.g. I know fonts that use contextual alternates under 'liga'
tag. My suggestion is to allow any feature tag in base mode and then
check the actual type of the registered lookups (which might already be
the case).

 Khaled
