Well, the way many of us are playing it is that the initate uses something that looks suspiciously like the devotee's feats, but since the initiate doesn't really have feats, they suffer a penalty for improvisation - I use -5, but I understand -3 to be more canon.

Greg's (I think!) take was that initiate's use the affinity directly, and lack the control that feats provide. Thus they just say 'I use my Death magic to kill the zombie' and its up to the GM to decide if and how this works.
