Main thing is to encapsulate all the feature flags into a clean feature flags API so it's clear to find all the places each one has been used

It's not uncommon for such flags to become redundant, and it's easy for them to go zombie.

Dead, but still lurking in the landscape and killing things.

Where is for actual version separation though, that almost feels more like a case for a set of global constants and conditional compilation rather than runtime decisions.
