Right, there is definitely some overlap between feature (blueprint) and
bug in a corner case: incomplete features. When you develop feature A
and land parts A1 A2 and A3, then realize that A4 is missing, it's a bug
("A is missing support for A4") and a feature ("Add A4 support") at the
same time. Those are usually good targets for exceptions, if they are
relatively self-contained.

My rule of thumb would be to consider them "features" until you release
a version where they are missing, at which point it becomes a "bug"
(i.e. acknowledge that it's an incomplete feature at release time).
