Why no RoutedEvent and DependencyProperty?

Hi guys!

Thank you very much for that great docking solution. Its working fine so far and looking good. However, there is this one thing that really disturbs me. WPF is a great framework and offers great functionality like RoutedEvent and DependencyProperty. Why would someone write a Control Library for WPF and not use those features? Im setting up a project with MVVM and binding my ViewModel to a property like ActiveDocument was only possible because i downloaded the code for AvalonDock and modified it. I suggest the target of a future release should be changing all Properties and Events. Just a suggestion!
