It's not about being too lazy, its just more practical. I can strap in on the chairlift or flexing down on one hand and pulling the hinge with the other,(Like a starting runner) using the same effort you would put in scratching your calf, instead of dropping my ass on the snow and have the next rider drop in front of me. I am sure there are stiffer bindings out there, but what's some (alleged) lateral play do? the rider-boot-board system is flexible anyway, unless you refer to an alpine board. If you pair the CTX with a stiff and narrow profile boot (Driver-X) you get the best combination I think. After a 30 day season I only had to re tighten few screws around. I am not going back to regular bindings.
