Deprecate Timestamp annotation in favor of RowVersion
Considering that "timestamp" has been deprecated in SQL Server for some time and is a synonym for the more precise denomination "rowversion", introduce the RowVersion data annotation in EF as an alternative to Timestamp and mark the current Timestamp annotation as deprecated.
Mark Phillips commented
Timestamp has apparently been marked as being deprecated for while. If you define a type as RowVersion in Sql Server 2008 RC2 it is still represented as a "timestamp" column. Until at some point "timestamp" is actually deprecated then it will be worth creating a "rowversion" data annotation. At the moment it is not clear if this has been deprecated in Sql Server 2012 - if you read the notes on Books Online - as it still mentions future versions - there seems a lot of confusion around this and if it is probably going to be deprecated sometime in year 2087 when databases will probably no longer exist in their current form ;-) (thats my prediction!)
