V0.13 now has a PartDesign::Draft feature which allows to select faces and apply a draft angle to them.

This is not the same functionality as that requested, but will lead to the same result.

I am not sure whether we should put even more options into the Pad/Pocket features. When I modelled for customers from the German automative industry, they insisted on always having draft in a separate feature.

Draft can be done Pocket/Pad for easy and simple cases. If you want to have more control Pad/Pocket get for sure overloaded.
I think both make sense. A one angle solution in the basic features and a own feature for the more sophisticated (future) solutions..

I have generally no problem if there are overlapping features functionality.
May the better win!
