This paper proposes a path to defragmenting research on feature diagram languages: (1) a global quality framework to serve as a language quality improvement roadmap; (2) a set of formally defined criteria to assess the semantics-related qualities of feature diagram languages; (3) a systematic method to formalise these languages and make them ready for comparison and efficient tool automation. The novelty of this paper resides in the latter point and the integration. The results obtained so far are summed up and future works are identified.
