I agree that reopening the stream is just syntactic sugar since it
really enforces nothing, but maybe a better option would be that the new
list of features is sent after each one is negotiated?  That would allow
my example to work (regarding some future feature) and would probably be
backward compatible since clients don't typically crash when they
receive something they are not expecting.  But going forward 'bis'
clients could expect the new set of features after, for example, binding
the resource.
