How can we improve Entity Framework Core?

Custom identity generator support

I'd like to have a custom identity generator support which would allow more advanced ID generation like HiLo-generator (or even sequence based hi/lo ID gneration). This would (for example) help reducing the amount of database accessed/communication which should result in a speed up when adding a batch of new records through EF.

        This would be great, was going to use ef code first and have all my keys as guids but it seems more trouble than its worth to try and get the guids generated, have to make the database do them in the end which kind of defeats the purpose of that extra trip back for me.
