I now will add the Rockwell 6s to my list of razors that love Feather blades. Its incredible in there. The list is now Feather AS-D2, Ikon 102, Wolfman WR-1, ATT M2 and Rockwell 6s.

I can't stand Feather DE's, UNLESS (lol), I cork-strop them first with a wine cork (genuine cork).  I just think they are too sharp for their own good.  Their overt sharpness way out-does their actual smoothness in my opinion.  Even if I put them in a razor with a mild gap the smoothness is overshadowed by the sharpness in a negative way.  I guess the only reason I continue to use them here 'n there is for the challenge of getting a BBS shave without irritation or worse.  Have I accomplished this?... yeahI have, in certain razors; but I continue to try them in different razors for the challenge.

Regarding Feather SE blades; I love 'em, especially after the second shave with them.  For me, on the third shave, they are just right.

I like Feathers in razors with lower exposure/gap, but even in those I sometimes can get irritation from them when going XTG/ATG.

I cannot agree more. I used to hate Feather blades, since I never got a good shave with them in any DE razor I've tried. Until I tried a Rockwell 6s - Feathers a butter smooth in the 6s - maybe even better than my preferred voskhod.

Sharpness in a DE blade has nothing to do with smoothness. The latter is from specialized coatings. Period. If you don't believe it then try a NOS carbon blade.     Smooth they ain't. Gillette stated in the 60's that their Blue Blade (coated by then) was their sharpest blade, even moreso than their stainless ones. That said, I never liked Feather blades as IMO their coating process is not as good as Gillette or Personna.
You're the reason the gene pool needs a lifeguard.
