I’m taking a break from my Drupal 8 OOP series to help further define something that has not been sufficiently spelled out in all of my D7 -> D8 research: when to use the CMI vs Features.

The configuration management system is meant to facilitate the workflow of development configuration to production, while Features is meant to hold a generic, reusable bundle of functionality.
