Does the Dynafit Comfort Binding give more reliability for aggressive skiing?

It’s been obvious for some time that the TLT binding, when used with a severely flexed and soft ski, may not allow enough for/aft movement of the binding in relation to the boot. While this is not a problem in average backcountry skiing, it’s well known that if you jam a soft ski into a bump trough or other declivity, your boot may pop out of the Dynafit TLT binding vertically at the heel. Indeed, what may cause this could be demonstrated in the workshop by aggressively flexing a soft ski with attached boot. Do so, and you’ll notice how the boot heel can jam against the binding. Conversely, if a soft ski was heavily “cambered” or reverse flexed, it could pull the pins out of the boot heel. I’ve had that happen when a bunch of slush piled up on my skis, and I went for a wild jump-turn.
