1. Burn already supports manipulating feature states (has since the beginning IIRC).

2. Already supported and I don't believe there are plans to remove the functionality.

Subject: [wix-devs] Feature based installs

Hi folks,

I think I saw something about this but can’t remember…

  1.  Currently with 3.11 can you do feature based installs (includes the bootstrapper) such you can install features A and B today, tomorrow install feature C (I believe the answer is no)
  2.  Are there plans to ensure feature based installs will happen with WiX 4.0

I really don’t want to go back to InstallShield ☹
