It should be clarified what happens when a URI can't be resolved, isn't  
available, isn't a supported binding language, etc. Either this draft  
should define what happens or it should require specifications using this  
draft to define the particular processing model.

Also, what would happen if two binding languages are supported? It assumes  
implicit inheritance but the two binding languages might not be compatible  
with each other...

Furthermore, I think the specification should explicitly note the circular  
reference between 'binding' and :bound-element just as it's done in the  
XBL specification. http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xbl-20060907/ section 5.10.
