Unfortunately, detaching bindings when removing from a document would actually break a good deal of our content. We need to come up with a sane XBL attachment story...
Should be desctuctor called? Note a bug 265086.

Jonas is this something we want to get fixed?
Not for firefox 3 unless this is holding back extension developers a lot? The leak in bug 296474 should be fixable through other means.

Yeah, most likely.
Note that we could just have a pending destructor queue (like pending ctors), add bindings to it where we currently tear down the binding implementation, and do all that, plus firing destructor, in either EndUpdate or off an event (like we do constructors). It's a scary change, though. Really scary. Likely to break some chrome, I bet (due to chrome working around this bug, at least in part).
Yeah, i'm more worried about chrome depending on things working as they currently are, than not being able to implement this "safely".
Are there some concrete examples for how a chrome dependency on this might look like? I'm not sure the dependency actually exists. But if it does, I guess it would be trivial to fix.
