Non edition-specific mentioned features page

Should there be a non edition-specific "Mentioned features" page that lists stuff that is not exclusive to Java or Bedrock, such as the biome votes and fletching/smithing table functionality? Many of these features are currently only on the Java Edition page, and given that Mojang is aiming at feature parity between Java and Bedrock, I'd imagine that there would be fewer mentioned features that only apply to one of these editions. –Sonicwave talk 17:39, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

 Agree We should not assume that a mention was meant for Java unless it explicitly says so or was mentioned before the Better Together Update. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 02:06, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

 Agree As long as the top of the page is clear that its for features mentioned in multiple editions so it does not become clutter with edition specific mentions.
We do need to consider what to do about the edition specific feature pages, I can see a lot of well meaning editors adding mentions to the Java page that already exist on the general one if we leave them out, but I do want to avoid redundant information. Maybe if its a large enough feature, add a section with a {{main}} link? KnightMiner t/c 06:46, 27 December 2019 (UTC)
@KnightMiner: The Java page could use {{about}} to point to this page. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 07:50, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
Linking to the page at the top won't mean new editors will read the page first. Plus, a reader looking for information on a feature coming to Java Edition is better off not needing to check two articles for one version when we can include links to specific features.
