Feature for JIS 4051/JLREQ widths

You may remember that JIS 4051 and JLREQ assume that the nominal width 
of some glyphs (e.g. brackets) is 0.5 em, while historically fonts have 
a 1em width for those glyphs.

I seem to remember that we agreed a while back to have an OT feature 
that would make the glyphs "conform" to JIS/JLREQ; IIRC, we settled on 
the existing hwid, and on some rewording of its description. However, I 
don't see that rewording in the OpenType spec. Does somebody remember 
what we agreed on?
