Support Containment / Hierarchical Models in OData
If I have a schema that has Orders and OrderDetails, I dont want /OrderDetails to be direclty accessible. I only want it to be readable through its parent: /Orders(1)/OrderDetails. Basically what was discussed on the astoria blog a while ago:
Good news: this is another thing that we felt was really important to take to the OData v4 protocol committee. This feature will be available in the near future as we finish work on our v4 stack.

@Petr - The core libraries (ODataLib and down) will have support for containment in the next couple of months. Web API will take advantage of that support probably in 1Q 2014. I'm not sure about the schedule for WCF Data Services explicitly, though.

Could you be more specific about what the near future means in terms of containment support in WCF Data Services?
