Actually that's a rear-entry or step in type binding. Some people love em, some hate em, last time I tried a pair was about 5 years ago so I'm not the one to ask. For traditional bindings you can get some models with a toe strap. Like the Burton Citizens you mentioned:

Notice the side view of the toe strap is very flat...


Here's the Burton Stiletto with a pronounced toe cap...



The cap goes over your toe and holds your boot both down and back into the heelcup. It allows you to wear your ankle strap a notch or two more loose, so you're not cutting of circulation but still have good support.

Everyone has their own tastes, I personally like a really obvious cap that'll lock on and not slide anywhere.
