I have filed ticket #321 to provide a get-features procedure to return
this list. Providing a variable would suggest that mutating the
variable would change the list of cond-expand feature identifiers, which
may or may not be true depending on the implementation of cond-expand
(it's essentially a phasing issue).

R7RS-large will provide such things using the environment enquiries
package. I have written a proposal EnvironmentEnquiriesCowan for them,
and filed ticket #322 to incorporate this into R7RS-small.
