Hi all of you,

Thank you very much for all the suggestions.
We have chosen to stick to optional, as this term is used in other
materials.

Personally, I would prefer something in the lines of "add-on" to clarify
that a feature might not be enabled and that the necessary hardware might
not be available.

Again, thanks to all of you for input; I will put it to good use at a later
time!

/Charlotte
