The concept with the proposed patch is that existing bindings would
need to expose a method for a service to opt-in to emitting this
signal.  And clients would need to know whether or not the service
emits the signal.

Now, maybe it would make sense to have a standard method
EnablePropertyChanges to reverse this, but then you'd be relying on
the binding being new enough to implement that...gets complicated.
