Just to make things clear: the request for use case clarification falls 
on John, or on whoever thinks that the "binding" property as currently 
specified should stay in the spec.

If no compelling use case is proposed, we need to drop the current 
"binding" property (but other properties can be proposed if they satisfy 
a use case deemed worthy by the WG).
