As a quick rule of thumb, I usually say it's a simple Improvisation (I use -5 instead of -3, but whatever) each time you change one word of the Feat. So 'Mile Axe Throw' is -5, 'Mile Arrow Shot' is -10. 'Leap Over Mud' and 'Run Over Water' are -5, but Walk On Water is - 10. Hmm... I seem to have a Vingan fixation...

It's crude, and packed full of exceptions (would I allow a Vingan Feat with a Bow & Arrows?), but it sounds easy.
