Hi Tony,

Julian tells me that the various protein DAS servers are serving domains that 
are on discontinuous regions of the genome by giving each feature the same 
feature ID rather than linking them by using the same group.  This strategy 
makes sense, and is in fact what the GFF3 spec calls for, but isn't what the 
DAS/1 spec says.  The question is:

	- How widespread is this practice?  Should I modify the 1.X spec
	retrospecticely to allow it?
