What about DependencyObject/DependecyProperty and MEF?

I'm currently creating my own MVVM and looking for other pattern implementations.

Cinch is great! 5 stars from me. But I'm currently heavy using DependencyObject/DependecyProperty and bindings between ViewModel and Model/WPF. DependecyProperty also supports change notifications and validation. I've found how to bind two DependencyObjects. It's simple, just use BindingOperations.SetBinding().

Unity is also good IOC model. But I more liked MEF (it will be in .NET4) and I have plans to use it. 

Have you any plans to use dependencies and MEF? How can I modify Cinch to use dependecy properties and MEF in ViewModel?

Cinch V2 will use MEF a lot. I am discussing MEF best practices with Glenn Blocjkk (creator of MEF) as we speak
