This is the big one. At the moment, XBL sorta supports a single binding (with
its chain of bindings it extends) attached to a node.
If we allow attachment of multiple bindings to a single content node, how do we
handle multiple bindings all specifying "competing" anonymous content (or, for
that matter, what do we do about method name collisions? We'd need to ensure a
stable binding compilation order somehow).
Or is the plan to not allow multiple-bindings-per-content-node in full
generality? If so, what restrictions do we plan to place on it?
