Yes, I'm becoming convinced by this, Affinities Augment, Feats are stand-alone. Trouble is, it's quite likely your feats are lower in rating than your augmented main abilities (like Close Combat), meaning you actually lose out by using the feats! Plus, I'm not sure I really WANT Decapitating Blow as a single action...

Of course, you MIGHT allow the feat to be auto-augmented (no action, 1/10 the value) by the ability it's based on...
