feedback/suggestion: improve vague binding errors at run-time please

This may have been addressed already but it's so annoying, I want to make sure...
When I bind to a property that doesn't exist,

Ex: <TextBlock Text={Binding Title} /> //"Title" doesn't actually exist

I get the following run-time message for each property:

Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=106663&Version=3.0.40806.0&File=System.Windows.dll&Key=BindingExpression_SourceConnectionFailure 

The problem is that it doesn't tell me anything at all about the attempted binding property so I have to guess!

Classic Silverlight applications do not have this problem.

Thanks for this feedback, Kevin,

I'm sending an inquiry to the Tools team regarding this, so it is on their "radar".
