I don't think features necessarily is a problem. Python has an 
incredible amount of features and is rather complex if you want 
to master it all, but you usually don't have to deal with it if 
you just want to solve a problem. So what is important is to have 
a smooth curve of incremental learning and keep the features out 
of the application level programming interface.

C++ is at the other end of the spectrum, not because of features, 
but because you cannot make good use of it (outside the C-subset) 
without being proficient.

So when newbies complain about not understanding the 
documentation for the standard library of a language, then that 
could be a sign of not supporting the incremental learning 
process as well as desired.

Sort of.
