RFC 19: style and label attribute binding...

If you bind all the attributes (or at least those that make sense) then that is a reasonable assumption since there are a fixed number
of properties for styles and labels. Deciding to bind or not is a runtime decision.

I'm not sure if I interpreted this correctly, but are you proposing  
to have a fixed number of style and label bindings pre-determined at  
compile time?  I thought the trend was to move away from compiled-in- 
limits?  Would it be terribly difficult to use dynamic allocation for  
these things?  I suspect that if you choose a reasonable limit, it  
won't be long before we start seeing people wanting the limit increased!
