Yes, I do what you and Jacque do as a workaround, of course. I recently 
implemented a feature management infrastructure the same way, given the 
lack of globally available constants.

on preOpenStack
global g<app>Features
put "feature1,feature2,feature3" into g<app>Features
end preOpenStack

...some other stack

global g<app>features
if "feature2" is among the items of g<app>features then

on closeStackRequest
delete variable g<app>Features
end closestackRequest

great for A/B testing, rolling out new features without messing with 
existing code, being able to roll back unwanted or not-working features 
after beta testing... and would be so much cleaner if we didn't have to 
resort to global variables and remember to put a reference to them in 
each place they're referenced...
