Oops, I totally missed that one :>

I think that "feature" and "[feature] provider" are the two most
meaningful ones of the set. If we replace all occurrences of *item with
either of the above, that should improve the readability already. Then
replace the last sentence of the intro with the following, and we are

"Support for the listed features is REQUIRED for compliance purposes. A
feature is considered supported if all providers listed in the feature's
table row are implemented. Exceptions to this rule are marked explicitly."
