I agree, he has brought up a valid point.
To summarize I think all the following are valid
    - <bind/>
    - <bind readonly="true"/>
    - <bind nodest="a"/>

And I think implementation (not sure) support the above (i.e. do not 
throw an error)

But what do the above mean?

 From you response, I believe you think
   <bind/> and <bind nodeset="."/> are the same.

and probably is true in case of bind element. I am simply stating this 
may not be universally true for all elements that support model binding 

(Also do not like the exception becoming the rule, by saying no 
ref/nodeset on an element is same as having ref="." or nodeset=".")
