I'm in favor of this. I don't remember if cutting out the
inference stuff in featurep breaks anything. I hope not.

I believe it is useful to have featurep only for properties
attached to symbols, and a separate system to do
set membership inference or perhaps other kinds of inferences.
At present featurep mixes up both (and it does a poor job
on the inferences). So at this point let's restrict featurep to
only symbol properties, and keep talking about a set membership
inference system.
