> The property maxChars on SkinnableTextBase should be bindable. I assume that many properties
on SkinnableTextBase aren't bindable for performance reasons. However, it seems to me that
maxChars is a property that doesn't change very often when it is used. For this reason, I
don't see any implications to making it bindable.
> In fact, it would be useful. For instance, to create a counter for how many characters
are left in a TextInput or a TextArea:
> <s:TextArea id="textArea" maxChars="500/>
> <s:Label text="{textArea.maxChars - textArea.text.length} characters left"/>
> That use-case currently results in a compiler warning because maxChars isn't bindable.
