I just went over to the Featured tab and clicked a question I thought I could answer, to see this:
One or more of the answers is exemplary and worthy of an additional bounty.
Guess I'm not going to get that bounty.
If I understand correctly, the purpose of the Featured page is to highlight questions so that they are more likely to be answered, which is what the bountier is "paying for". In this case, however, none of that is needed. This subset of bounties should be removed from the Featured tab so the focus can go to the ones that need it.
