I'm going to have to disagree with you on that one. While I agree the DataBinding is certainly powerful (and can, in certain scenarios be very simple), there are cases where the binding syntax can become quite horrific indeed. For example, imagine something like this:

<Window.Resources>
<MyStuff:MyMultiConverter x:Key="myMultiConverter" />
<MyStuff:SomeConverter x:Key="anotherConverter" />
</Window.Resources>

<MultiBinding Converter="{StaticResource myMultiConverter}">
<Binding Path="Foo.Bar[0].Funky" RelativeSource="{RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type MyStuff:SomeClass}, AncestorLevel=2}" Converter={StaticResource anotherConverter}" Mode="OneWayToSource" UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged" />
<Binding Path="Foo.Bar[0].Awesome" RelativeSource="{RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type MyStuff:SomeClass}, AncestorLevel=2}" Converter={StaticResource anotherConverter}" Mode="OneWayToSource" UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged" />
<Binding Path="Foo.Bar[0].Groovy" RelativeSource="{RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type MyStuff:SomeClass}, AncestorLevel=2}" Converter={StaticResource anotherConverter}" Mode="OneWayToSource" UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged" />
</MultiBinding>
