An Entity is essentially a property bag, with property names mapped to property values. However, now we have a mapping between property names and property Properties.
The Property class really represents an EDM value: the raw object-valued type and an EDM type that describes the type of the object. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa697428(v=VS.80).aspx.
close due to low priority, will re-open if needed.
