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. -- Duncan - List replies preferred.
