    The Linq-specified Delete method looks great. This adds "Delete" as an operation like "Count" to do something with the so-far selected records. Deleting records by their primary key only (much like the Find(params object[]) method works today) and updating only certain columns by a primary key (instead of updating all columns, even those not exposed in a form) is very important for disconnected ASP.NET MVC or Web API scenarios. You often have a link that deletes a record and only need to transfer its ID, so today I need multiple lines of code, or use Find() and retrieve the record first. When updating records in a multi-user environment, you don't want to overwrite columns with old values if the user hasn't really edited those in a specialised form.
