Yes absolutely

POD out of scope
Bidirectional Databinding function pointer destruction?

The real trick is that in my example POD could be chained together so upon
destruction the chain must be traversed or a list kept of all bound
variables which is used to unregister the remaining data bound PODs.

It's not clear to me how to handle this. I don't have all the answers...
hopefully these discussions would help flush them out.

Step 1:
Ask the question: Does this concept have merit?
Step 2:
Investigate the possibilities
Step 3
Propose solutions

Not sure I even know the answer to step 1 yet. I know it makes for cleaner
code.. This helps. I posted my example to see if there was any interest and
see if it has merit.
