I'm unclear what "user-level code" is, but as embedding 
#+application-platform-state & #-... etc conditionals is so useful 
and widely used in application code, perhaps an alternative would be 
to have a parallel *non-system-features* and reader macro (in order 
to sidestep the ccl::*features* special status and compile time 
problems).
