What happens when a feature you use is deleted?

Suppose you use a feature from a document created by another author.

I know that when the author creates new versions, your document continues to use the older version of the feature until you upgrade it.

But what happens when:

1. the document containing your feature has its permissions removed, so that you no longer have permission

2. the document containing the feature is deleted by the author

    Both 1 and 2 have the same answer -- the document that uses the feature continues to function as if the document that defines the feature is accessible.  You cannot use the feature in a different document directly, but you can use it again in the document that already uses it.

    @ dave_cowden , Derived parts remains in your document even if you don't have the permission to that document or the document containing the feature is deleted.Only thing is you can't update to any other version.
