FEATURES is there as a basic introduction to things zsh does well for
people who don't use it yet.  These haven't changed; it is not the NEWS
file.  It even says as much right at the top.  So unless anyone finds
something that is worthy of adding or emending it doesn't need

MACHINES is never going to be complete, because we're relying on reports
of problems from the field, but it is intended to be accurate and
useful, which it isn't at the moment.  It could probably be truncated to
a note saying it's a placeholder for reports of issues in installation
that need to be worked around --- which do get reported now and then ---
and a request for updates.
