That's the noun definition. Number 6 under adjectives is:

    "As normally  supplied  (not optional)."

Which is exactly how you are using it.

Sigh. I should have scrolled down _before_ I hit send :).

I'm familiar with that usage, but only as applied to features on
automobiles; "air conditioning is standard on Honda Accord, but not on
Ford Pinto". I've just never heard it used in a software package

Amazing how the mind conspires to hide memories from us!
