the main difference between mozilla XBL  and sXBL , here is , that in 
mozilla , you attach  a binding to a custom element by CSS or javascript.
as far as i understand in sXBL there are no such mechanisms. i agree 
that it would be nice if there were a way to attach a binding via script.

i see one problem with the current proposal, if the only way to attach a 
binding, is by QName matching.

suppose you have these custom elements, and a binding, that renders a 
bar chart from this data. you also have a binding that renders a pie chart.
now suppose you have a few <valueList>s  in your document, and you want 
the user to change  the appearence of every single  <valueList> individualy.
in mozilla, you could use javascript to change the binding for each 
<valueList> , or use combination of CSS-selectors to do so ( as i do in 
this example: http://www.treebuilder.de/svg/xbl/pieChart.xml  )
i wonder how i would do something like that in sXBL. maybe i miss 
something in the spec though.
