We have not implemented the segments as dependency objects for the sake of performance. The value look-up of dependency properties is times slower compared to a standard CLR property. Additionally, the more dependency properties are declared the slower the loading time is due to all the static metadata initialization. Anyways, we can perform some field-caching to keep performance untouched while having dependency properties and bindings. We will do our best to implement this either for the upcoming Q3 or for the first service pack after it.
Thank you for your feedback and for the feature request - I have updated your Telerik points for your time. Do not hesitate to write us back should you have any question/problem with our tools.
