Re: [Bug 3] Bindings draft should specify if all properties MUST have same value on all bindings

I don't think everybody else agrees that there is no problem.  I have  
only heard a couple people directly address this issue.

The last time we discussed this (this fall but also way earlier), we  
did come to rough consensus that properties, even live properties, must  
have the same value no matter which binding is used to request the  
value of the property.  (I am not sure I agree with the conclusion, but  
I agree there was rough consensus.)

Now I'm saying that it's not clear in the spec that this is required  
and we should put it in the spec.  This is a different issue (what  
should be in the spec) than the previous issue ( what should be  
allowed) although clearly one follows from the other.   In the message  
you point to, Geoff and Jason and yourself addressed the "what should  
be allowed" issue.  Now let's discuss "what should be in the spec".
