Using CLR 4 Dynamics To Mock Bindable Objects in XAML

When I’m building prototypes in WPF or working on a GUI spike in an agile development team I often find it really unproductive to continuously switch between working in XAML (with my designer hat on), and working on the plumbing code (with my C# hat on). Wouldn't it be nice to be able to model my data in XAML, and seamlessly use it with XAML Binding expressions that’ll be valid once the ‘real’ data gets plumbed in. Well, thanks to the dynamic features in CLR v4 this is now a trivial task.
