I agree. This is weird.
Since WKT is about geometries (and doesn't have a place for feature
attributes), I made it read and write geometries (in the OpenLayers sense).
However, I agree that the serializer/deserializer should deal in
features - since people should seldom be dealing with geometries
(especially collections of geometry) in OpenLayers.
I've created a ticket and patch that changes the behavior of the WKT
format. If approved, wkt.read() will return a feature or array of
features and wkt.write() will take a feature or array of features.
Let me know what you think,
