David Anson has another tip for using DependencyProperty.

In the previous tip, I explained why it's usually wrong to assign a value to a Silverlight/WPF DependencyProperty in the constructor for a class. The preferred way is to pass the default value in the call to Register, but there's another good option: set the property's starting value in the default Style for the control by putting it in generic.xaml.
