Entity Designer: Improve Model First to preserve user intent (aka support Migrations for EDMX)

The "Generate Database from Model" feature is referred to as Model First. There are functions in the power pack (http://bit.ly/8akJIs) to incrementally update my database from my model but it doesn't fully preserve user intent. For example, if I rename an Entity, I just want to rename the table, not drop the table and its data and add it again.
