I disagree, and I am also one of the original authors.

The behavioural parts have been removed from the spec. But the
spec is still all about adding behaviours to an element. Call that
binding and the public will not understand it ; call it behaviours
and they will understand it.
The original document never went beyond the status of first WD, is ages
ago and is totally forgotten. There is no confusion at all here and the
current spec remains a spiritual descendant of the first one.
