    The Discussion

      Hi Tim - when can we expect the video to be posted?

      Some more feature checks (maybe MS will see this???)

      1. When defining TPT or TPH relationships, will the designer ask for the relational design\technique that it should use when gen-ing the DDL statements?
      2. Must every Entity map to a table when on the design surface? Can base classes be non-abstract now(real POCO here??). Are there any thoughts on the overlap between this designer and the class designer? Should they not merge at some point given your POCO goals?
      3. With Oslo support can we expect the ability to segment models into smaller chunks (say by domain). Making it easier to work with large systems, especially in an environment where multiple teams are feeding off of one model
      4. If we take the model first approach, can we control where our classes are written to (their individual namespace and .cs file so our whole type system isn't rolled up into one monster file)
      5. Will this thing pay my taxes for me? Perhaps fetch coffe amongst other chores......
