True. The forward lean or ramp angle of the binding is tougher to fix. The heel lift theory just takes a few trail maps under the liner....
I don't think it is forward lean, as the cuffs of the boots appear very upright at times. It appears that the skier is using an older set of Xscreams without the pivot. Some Salomons have a very severe ramp angle, so you could well be right, that it's the tilt of the binding.
I am unfamiliar with the Xscreams, but on some Salomons, the bindings are set quite far back from the midpoint of the ski. The binding ramp angle is supposed to help compensate for this placement by forcing you to constantly pressure the tongue. I particularly dislike skiing like that.
Is this how the Xscreams are also setup?
