Oh, sure. But then greater complexity than "you can't" isn't hard :)

Let's see, what would you require?

"mythology of <deity>" at quite a high resistance, but with large modifiers for the player having come up with a good myth.

The affinity the new feat will be in, also quite a high resistance. You need to understand how that sort of magic "feels" at a deep level to play this sort of trick.

Now "just" HQ the myth. I'd say if you only want the feat for the leader, practice level should be enough. After all, that's enough to teach a known feat to others. But I think I'd also say that you need a complete victory to cement your feat. Partial victories would just give you bonuses to improvising the feat next time you want to do it.
