Well, the bindings themselves are dynamic, but this is what enables them, 
according to the description.  Only explaining all that is a bit long to 
stick in the flag itself, so leave it in the description.  Which, assuming 
it's correct, would make the name accurate as well, as bindings are what 
the flag is /for/, even if bindings are not actually what's /directly/ 
controlled by it.
