Power Feature

On the morning of Saturday 16th February, work will be carried out to connect up the new mains cable. As with last night, our aim is to maintain a full IT service as far as is possible, but (as already stated) there are some attendant risks and some temporary service interruptions could be a feature.
(emphasis mine)

It does sound like the standard cry of "it's not a bug, it's a feature!" and it amused me for a moment or two. Unfortunately, the programming definition of a feature isn't the global definition. A quick Google search gives me:
  • a prominent aspect of something; "the map showed roads and other features"
  • have: have as a feature; "This restaurant features the most famous chefs in France"

which make more sense.

Still, I was amused.
