Entity Framework Feature Suggestions

Support for other native data types and user defined types

Well it has to be in the .NET Framework data types, not sure whether there would be any work to do in EF for this. Meanwhile there should be a provision to include the new data types in the backend. for e.g. Oracle can have it's own user defined types, SQLServer 2008 R2 has HierarchyID datat type which I am not sure to what datatype it would map to at the conceptual level

We should have provision for such types
