It will not matter whether the binding manager is global: a binding links a
bound element with a <binding> element, the name is only to fetch the resource.
We index the bindings' list with the bound element in the XBLBindingManager.
This ensure that it will be different per-document.

Furthermore, having a per-document binding manager is a restriction that is not
on the specification. For example, with a per-document binding manager, you
will not be able to do the following (which is right):

var element = document.createElement('p');
