This seems ok if you know the feature is going away completely. If that's not true though, you may have problems: the backout looks like "i don't want this anymore" -- so if you go back to the original feature branch and fix the problems and then re-merge, you run a high risk of a bad merge because the backout looks like a "delete" that occurred after the original "add" in the feature.
