Dude,rephrase the question. Buckling bindings is not a problem... legitimate or otherwise. But if u ask "can bindings in general, or buckles in particular, be improved?",, then my answer would be : yes.. probably. But only incrementally because bindings are already fairly evolved. If u survey the dozens of bindings available today on the market, you will realize that collectively thousands of hours of design time has gone into these.. probably tens of thousands actually. Just what is your mission exactly? Improvement. Complete redesign. Speed. Ease. Strength. Market gimmicks. Be careful how u answer. The quality of the question matters alot. Your question was so vague, and so lame, i am like "WTF up with that.. ? "
