I’m wondering if feats are worthwhile anymore. Feats came around in 3e and persist into pathfinder and 4e. They too had their origins in Non-Weapon Proficencies (NWPs) though, so they’ve been around in some form for longer than 3e. The NWPs that weren’t related to skills were often more like powers or talents. In 3e, NWPs were formally split into a skill list and feats, which I think made a lot of sense given that construction and the evolution of the game at that time.
