Suggest a simpler data binding API

Over on Kai's blog, he describes how to implement data validation decorators using JFace Data Binding. In the comments, a whole lot of people complained that because the data binding API is very general, it does not yield code that is very intentional.

So as one of the original architects of Eclipse Data Binding, I'm curious: What would you like to see? Please comment.
