Are there any features available that we require a policy to control that isnt covered by the default domain policy or the default domain controller policy?

Well thats a bit of a vauge question - How do we know what you want?

I suggest you start by either sitting down and deciding what features you want and then come back and ask how to implement them, or perhaps look through the policies and see what you think could be useful to you (or a combination of both)

It sounds like you need to control something through Group Policy which cannot be done using the policies configured by default out-of-the-box in Windows Server.

In Windows Server 2008 and Vista, you can make use of XML-based ADMX files to achieve this. However, bear in mind that you need to know the registry key and entry for the Group Policy to control. That is merely all GPOs are; a nice friendly interface for implementing Registry changes at the client-end.

And for the syntax for making your own ADMX file, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753471.aspx
