Being UK based, the decision of the UKGC to ban feature buys in my view is a good one overall. They didn't really appeal to me on a personal level so no great loss as far as I'm concerned, and other threads cover the subject well.
What would appeal to me though, would be an official inclusion of some sort of free spins /feature locker on casino sites - say I triggered a feature on slot x, and then before it played out I had the option of saving the feature to an area of the site to play it out later. All above board, and not frowned upon by the casino or the providers.
It's a pie in the sky kind of dream request, as I'm sure the software implementation of such a thing would be way too much work when there would be little financial gain as such for the casino's.
But just imagine with me for a minute - going to your favourite casino and opening up your free spins / feature locker and seeing a whole host of ready to go goodies lined up for your excitement and entertainment.
It wouldn't be for everyone, I'm sure. One thing about playing 'normally' means that the free spins / feature trigger is an exciting moment as it's a comparatively rare occurrence. Playing out free spins / features consecutively can somewhat desensitize the excitement normally attached to them - this was certainly the case with feature buys.

You can already effectively do that, its called a bonus hunt.
Yeah, but whilst it's not frowned upon, the casino's don't really encourage you to do it, and some slots simply don't let you play out the feature once you exit the game. You'll just see your balance updated or the final feature complete screen once you go back to the game.
Besides, whilst you can as you put it, already effectively do that - it's a workaround that employs just using the games 'lost connection' scenario, rather than an active use of dedicated software to store the bonus, so it's scrappy at best.

why do some casinos not want you do to bonus hunts? I never understood.
Mostly to do with players using bonus funds (which I believe some of the more 'glorified' streamers get crazy ones, 500% with doable wagering etc)

Its been around years and was/is open to abuse, store up all the features until bust, zero out the balance, kill the bonus and the associated wagering, return and play the bonuses, hey presto wager free cash only in balance.

Most, if not all places will cover this in their T&C' as a "No-No" and I suppose it could get messy with or without a bonus attached at times, hence some preferring it to be avoided altogether.

I was actually told "no" when i asked about wich providers would "save" the bonus for me.
Was on Nordicbet, and the support just flat out said it was not allowed, even tho i was playing with raw cash.

Not 100% sure he was on the same page as me on what a "bonushunt" was, it may have been a misunderstanding from his side.
I have done some mini-stakes "hunts" since then, and its pretty fun.

Mostly used the 10-20c:s netent games. Doa, Warlords,Drive,Reel steal, Wild wild west,Steamtower.gonzo,etc.
Cant say i had the same success most streamers seem to have. =)
