GUID not being supported 100% in the Designer is a major bug/flaw in Entity Framework 4.0 considering Microsoft itself uses GUID's as primary keys in as rudimentory framework as the SqlMembershipProvider in asp.net. Using GUID's as primary keys is a generally accepted database methodology. What were you guys thinking or not thinking? Instead of including this in the next version of the framework how about a service release to fix this problem. Manually editing the SSDL section everytime we work on a existing database model with Guid's is getting to be a major pain.
