Allow dynamically adding properties to entities and complex types

want to use the entity framework. However I also have the requirement of allowing my users to define custom fields in our system. I would like to still use the entity framework and not use a a partial class with a hash table property.

        It would be great if we can add the capability to update the entity model at run time and add new fields (table columns) that can be used to filter and include in report.

        I would be ok with the ability to extend the generated class with a class I could simply drop into the bin folder to extend the properties too.
