Specifying Scenarios Safely None

If the feature paragraph isn't really used by the testing framework, then what is the point of all that typing?
The Gherkin format requires only that a Feature preamble exists.
If feature files were only useful to the test runner, it would be reasonable to leave the preamble empty.
But feature files are also used by human beings, perhaps days or weeks in the future.
If a feature has been in the backlog for a while, team members may have lost their original context (or that context may have gone 'stale' as the system concept has evolved).
Some reminders may be helpful.
The preamble records the abstract concept that is
illustrated by the concrete scenarios that follow it.
