yeah, well, I don't know if it is intended or not, but I do hear the 
underlaying message: we need some better tools for this kind of stuff, no?

maybe on relative short term some 'validator' could be made that checks 
if id's and datatypes are in sync between woody definition, binding and 
template files?  That could give upfront some more in depth warnings 
then the runtime environment allows...

in any case, it's just an idea, not a promise I'll start making that :-)
