I think bind/bound is somewhat overused: it's a very general word for a
relationship with very little information about the specific nature of the
relationship. Its use in the sense of "data binding" could create confusion.

There are words that are less overloaded with existing meanings. A glance at a
thesaurus suggests 

accredited, ascribed, imputed

Unique particle accreditation, anyone?
