Each component may have an arbitrary set of safe features. The components are defined in a guarded command form and the technique combines model checking and abstraction. Features must fulfill certain criteria in order to be safe, the criteria express constraints on the variables which occur in feature guards. The main result is a generalisation theorem which we apply to a well known example: the ubiquitous, featured telephone system.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
